TIGER Way 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.  

TIGER Way Task Force Progress Report

June 2017

At the first meeting of the TIGER Way Task Force on September 6, 2016, President Schatzel gave the committee its charge:

  • to audit best practices for recruiting/supporting Transfer, International and Graduate students
  • to audit TU’s current practices to identify shortfalls and to be able to prioritize areas for improvement
  • to propose an integrated plan to recruit and provide needed support to these student populations

To this end, the TIGER Way Task Force and its three subcommittees—Transfer Student, International Student and Graduate Student—have met every week throughout the 2016-17 academic year. Task Force co-chairs Lea Ramsdell, chair of the Department of Foreign Languages, and Bob Giordani, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management and Registrar, presented the following reports to the President’s Council on May 23, 2017. The committee plans to give the president action items by the end of July 2017.
