Towson University is committed to fostering a learning community that mirrors the population surrounding the campus, regionally and statewide. University and Office of the Provost diversity initiatives include building strong, targeted diversity outreach efforts to foster the achievement of diversity goals in hiring.

Working together, we can establish and maintain a campus community that: challenges students’ perspectives by providing a complete educational experience; promotes social, racial, ethnic, and political understanding by recognizing and respecting the rights of all individuals; enhances students’ professional development by exposing them to diverse perspectives and assists students in understanding how to effectively perform in a democratic multicultural society.

Our faculty and staff affinity groups are committed to supporting the personal and professional growth of faculty and staff members, as well as providing a connection to campus resources and leadership.
