Towson University creates economic, educational and societal change through our mission of teaching, research and public service. As Maryland's metropolitan university, we educate a broad cross-section of diverse individuals, giving them the tools they need to become the next generation of business leaders, teachers, health care professionals, mathematicians, writers, artists and athletes.
Increasingly, Towson's ability to provide these tools is challenged by shrinking funding resources and by rising costs associated with Towson's commitment to our students as individual and life-long learners. Over the last 30 years, state support has been reduced by nearly 50 percent, and today state appropriations account for only 25 percent of Towson's current operating budget. Towson's mandate to provide public education for every student with the ability and desire to attend has never been more vital or worthy of your support. Donations from alumni, friends and organizations help keep tuition affordable while ensuring Towson's wide array of educational opportunities continue for today and tomorrow's students.
Your contributions to Towson University will assure students the best education from outstanding educators at a premiere institution with regional impact and national recognition.
