Retired Faculty

The university and the Office of the Provost are committed to maintaining an active and engaged relationship with retired faculty. 


Towson University acknowledges and greatly values the significant contributions retired faculty members have made over the years to enrich the lives of their students as well as the life of the university. 

Remaining Engaged 

Many faculty members retiring from full-time service very much want to remain engaged and connected with the university. As such, the university has a variety of resources and programs which aid in fostering this important relationship. 

Regalia Loan Program

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the establishment of a loan program for faculty who may not own regalia so that they may participate in Commencement activities. 

We are currently seeking regalia donations to make available for current faculty when requested. These donations, made by a number of retired faculty, not only acknowledge and preserve the academic legacy of former faculty, but also both help and inspire current faculty members. Donations of gowns and hoods will be accepted and are tax-deductible.
