To celebrate the rich diversity of the Towson community, encourage study abroad opportunities
and enhance campus beautification, President Emerita Maravene Loeschke '69/'71 created
the International Walkway in 2012. The walkway features illuminated flagpoles flying
international flags that represent the home countries of Towson University’s international
students. The site for the International Walkway is located between the College of
Liberal Arts and the Psychology Building.
International Education Week (IEW) occurs annually during one week in November, and
is a nation-wide event, celebrated at many institutions around the world. The International
Initiatives Office teams up with partners across campus to host events and activities
with a global theme.
International Walkway Flag Rotations
The International Walkway flags are rotated based on Towson University’s international
student population. We encourage our campus community to watch or participate in the
hoisting of the flags and celebrate our campus’ vibrant diversity.
