|TU in the Community|
Towson University is reaching out to its community in new ways
to connect students, faculty, staff and alumni with business and government,
neighbors and friends. If you're looking for campus news and events, volunteer
opportunities, children's programs, conferences, business partnerships or
faculty research, you'll find it here.
Our new Community Projects Database makes it easy to get
information about TU's community engagement initiatives. Search by category or
use the directory to find faculty and staff involved in outreach projects. Use
the map to locate projects happening on campus and across the region.
