Towson University Office of Civic Engagement
8000 York Road
Administration Building 237
Civic engagement encompasses active citizenship, community involvement, advocacy, awareness of social issues and injustices, and the development of personal and social responsibility. It requires students to involve themselves in society with the intent to better the world around them. There are many opportunities for students, faculty and staff to civically engage at Towson University. The Office of Civic Engagement sponsors the campus newspaper program, monthly New York Times Talk lunches, an annual Environmental Conference, and panels and debates on relevant issues. We also support faculty service-learning initiatives. Learn more about our initiatives at http://www.towson.edu/studentaffairs/civicengagement/index.asp.
