The Office of Technology Services (OTS) offers a variety of services and workshops for faculty and staff to assist them with computing at Towson University. OTS also offers self-help technology resources to help you get started using your phone and email.


Mentorship Program

Towson University’s Staff Mentorship Program aims to develop relationships among staff, resulting in a stronger and more collaborative working environment. Specifically, this program assists with integrating employees into the Towson University community by providing them with a valuable resource, a mentor, who offers support and encouragement, and is a point of reference for many additional resources that this campus offers. The mentor/mentee matching program is available to all employees regardless of classification and division. Those interested in being a mentor or being mentored can register online and are notified as potential matches become available.
