Environmental Sustainability Programs
The Office of Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility hosts several environmental programs to create opportunities for learning and collective action as a campus community.
Most environmental programs occur in collaboration with the Office of Sustainability and the Eco Coalition, a networked community among student leaders that engages Towson University students in coordinated environmental education and action.
