Helping Children Better Understand Healthcare

As a current employee of Towson University and a 2006 graduate, I’m lucky to be an alum that gets to see, first hand, the growth and changes that take place at TU. I’m still adjusting to the entire side of campus called West Village, which, when I was here, was simply a parking lot. And now, a brand new science building is being constructed next to Stephens Hall. Physical changes and new buildings, however, are just one way that TU has grown. As I’ve mentioned in many of my previous posts, one change over the past two years has...

Guest Post: Institutionalizing Faculty Engagements through BTU

When TU President Kim Schatzel announced her eight presidential priorities, the BTU: Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore framework really piqued my interest. As a faculty member in the College of Business & Economics, I would be remiss to not be actively engaged in the regional business community. Our business relationships provide student internships, guest speakers, job placements, and inform our curriculum. We really would not be a successful business school without strong external partnerships—so is that block officially checked? Not necessarily. Most of us take part in several external engagements. Some are emerging ideas that we are just...

Race and the Wealth Divide in Baltimore City: A Community Dialogue

One of Towson University’s commitments through BTU: Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore is to extend accessibility to and increase involvement of community members and partners in supporting partnerships at TU. In addition to serving as the “front door” to current and potential partners, we also want to make sure that community partners are included and aware of events and opportunities that may be of interest to them. That being said, I am excited to share an opportunity with you. On Monday, November 13, 2017 TU will host a community dialogue about the intersection of race and wealth in...

Towson University Joins Baltimore Integration Partnership

TU is the first non-city based institution to join the nation’s biggest anchor network and works to set an example for metropolitan-serving institutions across the country and beyond. Towson University (TU) is, in fact, an anchor institution. It has been serving Greater Baltimore since its founding in 1866 and it is the largest university in the metropolitan area. Its recent acceptance into the Baltimore Integration Partnership (BIP) as the first and only non-city institution in the partnership’s history could not have come at a better time. The acceptance into BIP aligns perfectly with Towson University’s Placemaking and Anchor Strategy...

Who’s Who in BTU?

Whenever I describe BTU, I always try to point out that the idea and implementation of partnership work at TU is not new. However, while that work is not new, and although there have been previous groups that supported these efforts, the university-wide approach and increased level of support for partnership work at TU is new. In 2016, President Schatzel announced BTU: Partnerships at Work for Greater Baltimore as one of her eight presidential priorities. Since then, many TU faculty, staff, and students have been working to build a framework to capture and support the work taking place between...

Summer To-Do List: Help Populate BTU Database

When finding out that I work for a university, people often think that means I have off for summer break. However, while students leave campus for the season, the work of faculty and staff continues. One major item on my summer to-do list in particular, is completing an annual review of all of the external partnerships that are part of BTU—Partnerships at Work For Greater Baltimore. We are very excited that, for the first time this year, we are able to do this through the BTU Database, which we have been populating with partnership information over the past several...

Marlene Riley Recognized for Work with Older Adults

While many of Towson University’s faculty and staff are hard at work building and maintaining ongoing relationships with external partners, I would like to highlight one in particular—Marlene Riley, who was recently recognized by the Baltimore County Department of Aging (BCDA) for her work with their senior centers. Marlene, Clinical Associate Professor and Associate Graduate Faculty in TU’s Department of Occupational Therapy & Occupational Science, has been working with BCDA since 2006. Most recently, Marlene collaborated with BCDA on their Reimagine Aging initiative, which aims to challenge the stereotypes of getting older. Through this effort, graduate occupational therapy students...
