Towson University is working with partners to create positive impacts.

TU is committed to positive impacts, making a difference, and transforming lives in Greater Baltimore and throughout Maryland—but we don’t do this work alone. We do it through partnerships.

At TU, partnerships are supported by BTU—Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore. BTU is about elevating the work we’re already doing with partners throughout Greater Baltimore to better address the needs of the region.

Where BTU Stands Out

Our partnerships work because they focus on cross-campus collaboration, mutual respect, and innovative approaches to problem solving.

As of summer 2017, faculty, students, and staff have nearly 200 active engagements with BTU network partners. Across all engagements, Towson University is working with over 300 organizations in Greater Baltimore and throughout Maryland to create positive impacts.

In science, BTU represents a unit of work, power, or energy, and that’s exactly what Towson University is investing into our partnerships to make Greater Baltimore thrive. ”

A Presidential Priority

President Schatzel has made the support and growth of partnerships a top priority. 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 help us build a stronger foundation for Towson University’s promising future.
