We will enhance and strengthen our existing partnerships in Greater Baltimore through a framework of coordinating resources, sharing data, determining impacts and outcomes, and recognizing and rewarding those doing the work.
BTU—Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore is one of eight presidential priorities that are linked to and aligned with Towson University’s strategic plan. These eight priorities will help us build a stronger foundation for Towson University’s promising future.
BTU is about elevating the work that TU is already doing with partners throughout Greater Baltimore to better address the needs of the region. While respecting the breadth and diversity of our partnerships and relationships, the five impact areas serve as the basis for how the efforts, resources, and recognition of university-community partnerships are organized.
During the second half of 2018, progress was made to scale and institutionalize partnerships work on campus and to increase the impact of BTU on our communities. Highlights include, the BTU Council developed two new faculty and staff centric events that help them to tap into BTU and expand partnership work across campus; TU Athletics received a national community service title; and TU was honored by Campus Compact as an “engaged campus.” Read the latest #BTUatWork News Highlights Update (PDF) and learn more about the truly impactful work being done throughout Greater Baltimore.
