Faculty & Staff Appreciation Picnic

The Towson University Annual Faculty & Staff Appreciation Picnic is open to Towson University faculty, staff and their families.   

The picnic is held annually in recognition of the hard work and dedication employees bring to the university every day.    This event originated in the department of Human Resources.   It is funded by the Administration and Finance Division and now managed by Auxiliary Services with a dedicated planning committee comprised of employees across several departments.

Planning Committee:

Have feedback or ideas for the picnic?    Get involved!

Our picnic could not happen with the creativity, dedication and hard work of our picnic committee.   The picnic is planned, executed and staffed by a committee of volunteers of faculty and staff from several different departments across campus.   Many thanks to each and every one of our committee members for their service at this event!

If you are interested in joining the picnic committee, please contact Kelly Crispo at 4-4255 or .    We are always looking for fresh faces and new ideas!
