Partnerships & Outreach

Building new partnerships and fostering existing relationships between Towson University and the communities we serve.

The Office of Partnerships and Outreach is made up of a team of community engagement professionals, partnership specialists, and strategists that focus on matching the expertise and resources of the university with external partners to meet the needs of Greater Baltimore.

Partnerships Management

We work across campus and throughout the community to provide critical support, coordination, and decision-making to further the work of BTU: Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore. We serve as the front door of the university for external partners and make connections between TU’s faculty, staff, students, and community partners. This includes strategic partnership management, data collection and utilization, reporting, marketing and communications, event management, funding support management, and cross-campus convening.
