A Focus on BTU

TU is committed to making positive impacts and transforming lives in the Greater Baltimore region—but we don’t do this work alone. We do it through partnerships.

BTU—Partnerships at Work For Greater Baltimore is about elevating the work faculty, staff, and students are already doing with our partners throughout the region.
