Student Leadership

Leadership development is a cornerstone of the TU student experience. Towson University believes that leadership is not about being in charge; it is about your integrity, your self-awareness, and your vision for creating change well beyond the classroom.


Leadership experiences at TU are designed to develop engaged and self-aware students who possess the skills necessary to create positive change not only in the TU community, but in the greater global community as well. TU is an ideal setting for students to grow as individuals and leaders.

For the 2021-2022 academic year, we have both in-person and virtual programs, to suit each student’s needs and interests. Follow us on Instagram @leadattu to stay up-to-date on our programs.
