Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility
Administration Building, Second Floor
Office Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Change toward a more democratic society doesn't just happen; it depends on people stepping up and doing the work of leadership—making connections, offering a vision, mobilizing others, recognizing and seizing opportunities.
The Office of Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility promotes political engagement, sponsors environmental initiatives, community service, and service-learning initiatives for faculty along with the campus newspaper program, monthly New York Times Talk lunches, and panels and debates on Freedom Square.
Additionally, we provide resources to students considering moving off campus. Our Off-Campus Living series includes events and workshops that educate students about the importance of choosing the right roommate, navigating leases, locating housing and utilizing public transportation. Towson University students take the Tiger Pledge during New Student Convocation and at Commencement and are challenged to live up to the ideals of the pledge.
We offer many opportunities for students, faculty and staff to practice civic engagement and social responsibility at Towson University.
