BTU—Partnerships for Greater Baltimore
Partnerships are central to TU’s identity as a community-engaged institution. They support our mission, enhance the student learning experience, and create positive impacts in our community.
2023 BTU Partnership Awards
The 2023 BTU Partnership Awards will recognize up to three mutually beneficial partnerships taking place between Towson University and at least one community partner. Recipients are determined based on the following criteria:
- The extent to which the partnership aligns with at least one of the five BTU impact areas
- The impact and scope of the partnership on Towson University and Greater Baltimore
- How the partnership exemplifies best practices and problem solving to address community needs
- How outcomes are assessed and measured
Award recipients and their community partner(s) will be celebrated at an awards reception on Wednesday, November 8 2023.
Towson University is committed to positive impacts, making a difference, and transforming lives in Greater Baltimore and throughout Maryland. However, we don’t do this work alone. We do it through partnerships. At TU, partnerships are supported by BTU (Baltimore–Towson University) — elevating the work we’re already doing with partners throughout Greater Baltimore to better address the needs of the region.
Our partnerships work because they focus on cross-campus collaboration, mutual respect, and innovative approaches to problem solving.
