The Center for Student Diversity (CSD) was established to aid the university in its
efforts to foster inclusion, collaboration and relationship building. We provide academic,
social and transition support for underserved students and promote exchanges and dialogue
between individuals of diverse backgrounds and identities.

Statement of Solidarity
Towson University remains in solidarity with the APIDA community to end racism and
hate in all its forms after the senseless murders in Atlanta. These attacks are fueled
by hate and bias and the only response to them is support, education and action.
Like never before, success—locally, nationally, and globally—is related to an individuals
ability to lead, incorporate technology, and negotiate differences. It is becoming
increasingly difficult to remain in isolated enclaves with people who are like us.
TU, therefore, is engaged in increasing the diversity among its students, faculty
and staff; addressing the needs and concerns of its varied populations; and promoting
multicultural learning for all students.
As part of the Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity, we collaborate to support the access and academic success of historically under-represented
groups through programs and services that enhance the student experience.
We provide the following:
Support for multicultural student organizations
Financial assistance to under-represented undergraduate and graduate students
Diversity awareness in and out of class seminars, workshops, and presentations
A weekend Diversity Retreat
Nationally celebrated heritage programs
Diversity educational and resource materials
Advocacy, consultation, and referrals
Leadership, mentorship, and peer education programs
Provide educational outreach to build awareness, appreciation, and allyship of diverse
student populations and communities
Assist the university in the outreach, recruitment, and retention efforts for students
of color and other under-represented populations
Assist the institution in the creation of policies and procedures that address the
interests and concerns of under-represented students
Our staff members hope you will take advantage of the many programs and services offered.
If you recognize a need we have missed, tell us about it. If you want to work with
us to help eradicate bias, discrimination, and intolerance and promote cross-cultural
awareness, dialogue, interaction, leadership and coalition building, please contact
us. We maintain a warm, welcoming space. Stop by and see us any time. All are invited
to participate in our activities!
