Acknowledgment of Land and People
Towson University seeks to cultivate relationships with Native American and Indigenous
communities and nations through academic pursuits, partnerships, historical recognitions,
community service and enrollment efforts. These communities and nations include the
Susquehannock (suh-skwuh-ha-naak), Nanticoke (nan-tuh-kowk) and the Piscataway (puh-ska-tuh-way)
people whose ancient homeland is currently occupied by the university.
The Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity (OIIE) conducted a series of oral
histories with elders from tribes indigenous to the area to develop TU’s land acknowledgment.
