Signature Programs & Events

Each semester, the Center for Student Diversity brings culturally relevant speakers, educators, activists and entertainers to campus. These programs give students access to some of the world's most influential minds of our time.

Diversity Speaker Series

Each semester, Towson University hosts this signature event which brings a one-of-a-kind speaker to campus to discuss social issues facing the TU Community. Past speakers have included pivotal individuals such as: Angela Davis, Common, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Arun Ghandi, Nikki Giovanni, Ben Jealous, Cleve Jones, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, Kurt Schmoke, Chuck D, Dr. Julianna Malveaux Hasan Minhaj, Laverne Cox, Julián Castro, Dr. Michael Benitez, Jr. and most recently Melissa Harris-Perry.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration

This celebration of the life of this legendary social justice advocate typically takes place in February because Towson University students usually do not return to campus in time to celebrate the national MLK Holiday in mid-January.

Set It Off

Each year, the Center for Student Diversity and Greek Life hold an annual welcome back event for Towson students. At this event, students make connections and have many exciting opportunities to get involved, meet new people, join a Greek organization and compete for prizes while enjoying free food, fun, and music.
