than 22,200 students are enrolled in a wide array of undergraduate and graduate programs. Our full-time and part-time faculty is committed to excellence in teaching, and their scholarship, research, and service are exceptional. We take great pride in the fact that all of our faculty is engaged in teaching as their primary commitment at their university. Moreover, the faculty is supported by a dedicated staff committed to student success.

The Provost's Office provides the support and resources for an environment where students and faculty can engage in learning and teaching, scholarly research and creative work, as well as service to the community and the University.

Through collaborative initiatives, we are addressing regional educational needs with initiatives ranging from K-12 programs to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. The Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs provides leadership and is responsible for the oversight of all academic programs and services. We are committed to working together with other university administrators, faculty, staff, students and community to carry out Towson's mission.
