Office of Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility

Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility encompasses active citizenship, community involvement, advocacy, and awareness of social issues and injustices. It requires students to not only participate, but also lead with the intent to improve their neighborhoods, their communities, their countries, and ultimately the world.

Our vision: The transformation of Towson Tigers into Civic-Minded Leaders

The Office of Civic Engagement & Responsibility promotes political engagement, sponsors environmental initiatives, and service-learning initiatives for faculty along with the campus newspaper program, monthly New York Times Talk lunches, and panels and debates on Freedom Square.

Towson University students take the Tiger Pledge during New Student Convocation and at Commencement and are challenged to live up to the ideals of the pledge.
