College Readiness Outreach Program (CROP) connects 9th graders from Baltimore City Public High Schools with TU students who serve as mentors that provide a series of college readiness workshops. Local underrepresented students are provided an opportunity to build a solid plan around how to matriculate successfully through high school then college. College students volunteer to facilitate individual or group sessions sharing their experiences, encouraging academic persistence, and helping students rethink what success means for them.
The Community Enrichment and Enhancement Partnership Award (CEEP) is administered by Towson University's Center for Student Diversity (CSD). CEEP (pronounced KEEP) is designed to increase the access and success of culturally diverse undergraduate students attending Towson University.
Students Achieve Goals through Education (SAGE) program is one component of Towson University's cultural diversity and student retention plan. Program resources are used to foster academic achievement, personal development, and campus wide involvement among entering students from diverse backgrounds. The SAGE program's original mission continues and has expanded to include any entering freshman that wishes to participate. SAGE program participants are assigned a peer mentor and participate in various activities that enhance academic, budget management, and decision-making skills. Participants also expand their knowledge of diverse cultural groups, career development strategies, and participate in networking opportunities.
Program events occur on Tuesdays, 4 - 5:00 p.m., University Union - Chesapeake Room III.
