Deans

The deans oversee the six academic colleges in addition to the Office of Graduate Studies, the Honors College, and the University Library.

At Towson University, deans play a central role individually and as a group, in the university's academic administration.

Deans are involved centrally in issues including strategic planning, budget, curriculum, facilities and research. Moreover, they are key participants in external relations of the university including fundraising, alumni relations, economic development, political priorities (federal and state) and internal and external community relations.

On behalf of students, deans support and promote the highest quality educational programs, scholarly inquiry, public service and economic development activities of their respective colleges and entities.
