As 2021 comes to a close and we look forward to a new year, we take this time to look at where we’ve been. Our year in review highlights some of our accomplishments, impacts, and stories from the past twelve months.
Challenging the status quo of leadership development
The Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute offers a values-driven and robust portfolio of offerings for individuals and organizations that create transformational outcomes.
The StarTUp at the Armory is TU’s front door for start-ups, small businesses, as well as our region’s largest corporations.
The mission of UpSurge is to make Baltimore the next great tech city and to be an inclusive, thriving growth hub at the forefront of innovation that supports companies rather than exclude them.
Addressing Workforce Needs
We have implemented several new continuing education courses based on growing demand and have updated other courses to reflect industry changes so working professionals are prepared to meet the demands of the workforce.
In partnership with Academic Affairs and Student Affairs, we manage and support BTU—Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, TU’s partnership work didn’t stop. Instead, the partnerships pivoted, endured challenges and, in some cases, formed because of the pandemic.
Providing research and analysis solutions
We provide analysis, technical, and research services to the region’s businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations that directly benefit the citizens of our state and region.
Anchoring Our Community
Higher education institutions like TU are anchor institutions—local economic engines and mission-driven organizations tied to the long-term well-being of their local communities.
This learning community is “…committed to transforming higher education and our communities by deconstructing systems of oppression through place-based community engagement.”
Since 1999, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Towson University has been providing adults, age 50 and older, opportunities for continued learning, along with programs and activities for social and cultural enrichment.
Many of us think back to science class with fond—or not so fond—memories of experiments, science fair projects, and learning about what really makes the world turn. One Osher instructor is helping us relive those positive experiences.
