President’s spring address to be livestreamed from the Center for the Arts

The April 11 address marks the first time the president’s remarks will be exclusively livestreamed for the campus community.

For the first time in Towson University history, the president’s spring address will be exclusively available to the campus community via livestream. The address will be streamed on the President’s Office website at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 11.

President Kim Schatzel will deliver the address from the Center for Arts Recital Hall to a limited capacity audience, including invited members of the Student Government Association, University Senate and TU Staff Council. Her remarks will focus on institutional achievements and announcements, as well as updates on the eight presidential priorities.

Construction on the new Science Complex was a driving factor in relocating the address to a smaller venue and shifting to an online format. The livestream allows the campus community to watch the address regardless of location while maintaining the best view possible.

Schatzel began the tradition of a TU spring address in 2016 to offer updates and information in addition to her remarks in the fall. Both the fall and spring addresses will be relocated from Stephens Hall until the new Science Complex opens in fall 2020. 

The livestream will be accessible via computers and mobile devices and will be captioned for individuals with hearing impairments.
