Civility Peer Educator
Civility peer educators will have the opportunity to co-facilitate a workshop with
a staff member from the Office of Student Conduct & Civility Education. Civility peer
educators will work under the mentorship of this staff member, and will be able to

in experience. This is a unique leadership opportunity that allows an undergraduate
student to engage with their peers in a discussion that matters to the campus community
and society as a whole. Workshops are held about 2-3 times a semester in the Fall
and Spring semesters, as needed for enrollment, on Friday afternoons from 1:00 to
3:30 PM or 2:00 to 4:30 PM, depending on student class schedules. Interested applicants must submit this application and current resume. Please contact
Bethany Doyle by email: bdoyle AT_TOWSON or phone: 410-704-2057.
TU Leadership Consultants (TULC) participants are a part of the Student Activities
team and serve as peer educators who promote and teach leadership to students through
workshops, retreats, and conferences. As a member of TULC, you will learn invaluable
skills such as workshop facilitation, leadership experience, event planning, and program
assessment. Contact Student Activities for more information.
Orientation Leaders & Orientation Assistants
Orientation Leaders (OLs) are the incoming students’ first impression of what it truly
means to be a tiger. OLs direct the new students through orientation, convocation,
and the Welcome to Towson weekend, maintaining a positive attitude and high level
of energy throughout the orientation process.
Orientation Assistants (OAs) provide direction during the Transfer Program. They have
all transferred to TU themselves and therefore are invaluable resources during the
transition of new transferring students. The OAs work closely with the academic departments
of the university. If you are interested in becoming a member of the New Student Programs
(NSP) family, stop by the office in UU 217.
Resident Assistants (RAs) are in charge of maintaining a welcoming atmosphere in each
of the on-campus living communities around campus. In addition, RAs are also responsible
for promoting the values and ideals of a Towson University student and encouraging
his/her residents to do the same by hosting various programs and events throughout
the semester. For more information on what it means to be a Resident Assistant, visit
the HRL website.
The Students Achieve Goals through Education (SAGE) Program works to incorporate new
students into many educational, cultural and social aspects that Towson University
has to offer. Each SAGE mentee is paired with a SAGE mentor who takes on the role
of guiding their mentee through their first year at Towson. This includes helping
with career choice, major and minor selection, course registration, identifying campus
organization and activities, employment, roommate relationships, financial aid, navigating
the Towson University campus and Metropolitan Baltimore. More information about the
SAGE mentorship program can be found here.
Student Support Network
From TU's Psychology Department comes the Student Support Network (SSN), a seven-week
training program that provides skills to help a friend in crisis. We discuss mental
and emotional health, warning signs of a friend who’s struggling, and how to talk
about difficult issues. You will be equipped with resources to address these issues
and develop strategies for how to connect them with your friends in need. We utilize
direct teaching as well as practice situations with role-playing and visualization
in order to build your ability to respond effectively when presented with real struggles
from your loved ones.
