Student Outreach and Support (SOS) assists students with navigating challenges and overcoming obstacles—whether large or small. The SOS team of fulltime professionally trained Student Outreach and Support Coordinators in the Dean of Students Office are committed to supporting students and making a difference in their lives at Towson University. SOS's approach is solution-focused problem solving through motivational interviewing, self-advocacy and coaching. SOS helps students navigate the TU's processes across a wide range of departments and services.
