The mission of the Women’s Forum is to bring together the women of the University System of Maryland in order to enhance the status of women, to foster networking among women and to encourage the participation of women in all facets of the system. It is the express purpose of the Women’s Forum to respect and to value the diversity and richness of the perspectives and experiences of all communities of women within the system.

Leadership is about integrity, self-awareness, creating a vision for positive change, and making a difference. And, since 2014, the TU Professional Leadership Program for Women has created opportunities for women leaders from across Greater Baltimore to realize their leadership potential while building a network of peers who support one another long after the program has ended.

The Women’s Leadership Collective at Towson University provides leadership skills and experience to women throughout their academic and professional lives — while creating a collective of women supporting women. The Collective creates distinct cohorts of TU undergraduate and graduate students and high school girls.

Scholarships, professional development and research awards are available to any female or female-identified USM student, faculty or staff member. Apply today.
