Campus Ministries strive to promote understanding and appreciation of religious diversity and serve the spiritual wellness and religious needs of the campus community
8:30 AM to 5 PM
A variety of faith communities are represented on campus through support staff assigned to the university. Our campus ministers advise religious student organizations as well as provide personal ministry in counseling, theological discussions, and support students in other areas. In addition, several campus ministers lead discussions on contemporary issues and sponsor guest speakers or social events.

Members of the Religious and Spiritual Coordinating Council (RSCC) must adhere to a set of bylaws and code of ethics. They are listed below.
It is the right of any religious or spiritual organization to send a representative (ordained or unordained) to work on the campus of Towson University (TU), and we respect the right of that representative to minister on this campus. However, we, the members of the TU Religious & Spiritual Coordinating Council (RSCC), deem it necessary to make this agreement with any religious or spiritual staff at TU who wishes to participate as a member of the TU RSCC.
The purpose of the TU RSCC is to gather into a cohesive, communicating, professional body all those who minister in the name of religion and spirituality at TU and who wish to participate in a council as colleagues. Our purpose is to better serve the campus community as well as the religious or spiritual institutions we serve as an official link with TU.
Membership carries benefits in personal, professional, and logistical areas. If one chooses not to participate, one will not receive the benefits of membership. Benefits include the chance to meet and interact with other religious or spiritual staff and to be officially recognized by the University through the Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity. Other benefits include parking privileges, TU OneCard, reservation of facilities and other university privileges to better function on campus.
We are guests of the University and will act in accordance with the TU Policy on Campus Ministries 06.07.00. We are accountable to each other and need to hold each other accountable, and we are accountable to our appointing body.
The chair and secretary will supervise the above process.
Changes to this bylaws may be made at any regularly scheduled meeting of the RSCC by the vote of a two-thirds (2/3) of the membership present.
