The mission of Educator Preparation Programs at Towson University is to:
Towson University will be recognized for preparing innovative and socially just professionals who advocate on behalf of children, families, and the profession. We will empower educators with a strong knowledge of research-based pedagogies, a technology-rich skillset, a deep understanding of how children, youth, and adults learn, and caring dispositions to lead and succeed in inclusive and equitable settings.
In Spring 2021, Towson University will release a new strategic plan with its mission, vision, values, and goals that will define objectives to deliver transformative outcomes over the next ten years.
To align with the University’s strategic plan, the College of Education is in the process of developing a strategic plan to help advance our efforts in preparing future educators. The development of the strategic plan will be an intentional and comprehensive process in collaboration with COE leadership, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and partners.
