Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility hosts service events throughout the year on-campus. Check our events page for the most current details on each of the below and more.
In partnership with the Office of Sustainability, campus clean-ups are designed to prevent trash from ending up in our waterways. Student groups and organizations are able to schedule a clean-up for a date and time that works for their members. Contact Lisa Hill (lhill AT_TOWSON) to schedule your event.
First Fridays provides students the opportunity to volunteer at various organizations on the first Friday of each month. Transportation is provided from campus to the service site and back to campus at the end of the event. First Fridays run from September through May.

We are proud to partner with the United Way of Central Maryland to support Project Homeless Connect, an annual event to provide vital services to over 2000 members of the Baltimore homeless community. Each year Towson University students, faculty, and staff volunteer their time to ensure the success of this important program. Volunteers guide clients through the event, staff the intake tables, and serve as logistical support.
Thank you to the TU students, faculty, and staff who volunteered at this year's event. Information for the 2018 Project Homeless Connect event will be available in September of 2018.
Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give of their time and effort because they believe it's time to take action against cancer.
TU Relay For Life occurs in April each year. Additional information can be found at the TU Relay For Life page.
TU's Annual Stuff-A-Bus Campaign collects toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots initiative as well as non-perishable food for the Maryland Food Bank. Donation boxes can be found around campus and donations will be accepted at the bus under the bridge on Osler Dr. from late November to mid-December.
Students may sign up to staff the bus, earning volunteer hours for their time. Volunteer registration information will be provided in the fall.
