Education Community

Residents of the Education Community will connect with other members of the Towson University Community who are interested in pursuing a career in education.  This community will provide social and academic support structures to enhance and enrich the experience for residents interested in early childhood, elementary, special, or secondary education.  Residents will have the opportunity to participate in shadowing interns to learn about the Education major, connect with students, faculty, and alumni, and complete community service activities.  This community is a partnership with the College of Education and Housing & Residence Life.
