New Employees

Welcome to the Towson University team!

About Towson University

Towson is among the largest public universities in Maryland, yet known for maintaining a small-campus feel. We're also recognized as one of the nation's best regional public universities. Our reputation is the result of phenomenal students, alumni, and employees whose dedication directly impact our community.

TU 2020, Towson University's strategic plan outlines several underlying principles, including staff commitment and development, and community outreach. The commitment of our staff is demonstrated every day. Staff development — personal and professional — is paramount to the university's current and future success. The university's commitment to development is easy to see with the vast opportunities available to our employees. Community outreach is also such a staple of this university. It's been said time and time again that our culture is hard to explain; that you have to live it and breathe it to understand it. It's strong, it's felt by all, but it's difficult to put into words. 

While our main location is in Towson, Maryland, the university has satellite campuses throughout the state. Regardless of your location, you are a Towson Tiger. You are joining a strong team with remarkable employees making a difference in the lives of our students, the communities that we live and work in, our state, and our world. Every employee at Towson University matters and contributes to its success.
