Service, Engagement & Leadership

Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility encompasses active citizenship, community involvement, advocacy, and awareness of social issues and injustices. It requires students to involve themselves in society with the intent and leadership to better the world. 

The Office of Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility promotes political engagement, sponsors environmental initiatives, and service-learning initiatives for faculty along with the campus newspaper program, monthly New York Times Talk lunches, and panels and debates on Freedom Square.

Towson University students take the Tiger Pledge during New Student Convocation and at Commencement and are challenged to live up to the ideals of the pledge.
