Academic Success Starts With Supportive Relationships

Good teachers educate. Great teachers inspire.

At TU, you’re never far from someone inspiring. Students work directly with professors in discovery who are leaders in their fields. Scholars here are true mentors dedicated to their crafts, challenging themselves and challenging you. They are passionate leaders creating opportunities for you to grow and flourish, putting your knowledge to work in internships, community projects, study abroad and other interactive experiences.

Towson University’s focus on innovation and entrepreneurship makes it a perfect place to encourage collaboration and partnerships with the community and the world. We believe every student benefits from working directly with experienced professors who strive to make learning a more personal experience. Mentorship is no accident here. TU students work alongside teachers and professors to make a real difference in the world.

Mentors Matter

  • Small class sizes, inspiring faculty and interactive learning experiences are hallmarks of a TU education.
  • You’ll work directly with internationally known authors, scientists and artists, including Nobel laureates, Guggenheim and Fulbright fellows.
  • Professors are interested in your future success. At TU, teaching goes beyond textbook learning to help jumpstart your career.
“We show students that the college experience is more than a piece of paper or a diploma. They have family here. Once my student, always my student.”
