USM Board of Regents Honors Staff Member from Fisher College’s Center for STEM Excellence

Debra Phillips, a nonexempt staff member, was celebrated as an efficient, productive and valued member of the center’s team. Thanks to her efforts, the center has increased the number of lab kits it provides to Maryland’s K–12 schools as part of its science education outreach program—reaching more than 16,000 students. Phillips also serves as a mentor to student interns not only from TU but also from the Biotechnical Institute of Maryland—a nonprofit biotechnology job training program.     Read more »

Fisher College Faculty Focus on Inclusion in Mathematics

FCSM’s Actuarial Science & Risk Management Program Continues to Earn Acclaim

The Mathematics Department’s actuarial science & risk management (ASRM) program continues to earn widespread acclaim, with students performing well in international competitions and presenting at professional symposia.  Towson University is a Center of Actuarial Excellence (CAE), the highest honor conferred by the Society of Actuaries on colleges and universities. TU is the only school in Maryland to be recognized and is one of only about 36 schools worldwide with that distinction.  Schuyler Call, president of TU’s ASRM club and recent graduate says “Employers understand the type of rigor required to get through this program.  “I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in math, finance, economics or business and is willing to put in the work.”    Read more »
