A more diverse and inclusive campus will be achieved through senior-level leadership with strategic vision for the design, promotion, and delivery of best-practice diversity, inclusion and cultural competency efforts across campus.
Under the auspices of the President, the Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity (OIIE) affirms and supports Towson University’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity. The office fosters a university climate that is grounded in respect, civility, and inclusion, enriches the educational experience of students, supports positive workplace environments, promotes excellence, and cultivates the intellectual and personal growth of the entire university community. In addition, OIIE works to support the university’s commitment to a learning and working environment free from sexual misconduct, discrimination, harassment, hate and bias.
The Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity strives to foster a culture of integrity that values shared responsibility as a critical element of an inclusive, equitable and diverse community. This vision is built upon the belief that a diverse and inclusive campus community enhances our institution and strengthens us all in immeasurable ways.
Towson University’s goal to become a National Model for Diversity is one of the institutional priorities in the university strategic plan TU 2020: A Focused Vision for Towson University. In June 2014, the President’s Council adopted and approved five strategic diversity goals to take Towson’s diversity efforts to the next level. They are:
