Towson University promotes Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility through the Tiger Pledge. Students are encouraged to take the Tiger Pledge during New Student Convocation and at Commencement, and are challenged to live up to the ideals of the pledge while at TU and as alumni.  

We accomplish this by promoting political engagement, sponsoring environmental initiatives, creating community service, and service-learning opportunities, and delivering to the TU community a campus newspaper program, monthly Issues to Action Series events, and panels and debates on Freedom Square. Additionally, we assist students who are living in the greater Towson community. We work to create opportunities for off-campus students to stay connected to campus as well as emphasize off-campus safety and how to be a good neighbor.
