University celebrates campus diversity, in and out of the classroom

As part of the 2013 Multicultural Conference, Towson University President Maravene Loeschke honored a student, faculty and staff members, and an administrative and academic department for their excellent work in support of advancing the university’s commitment to diversity.

The university’s Reflective Process for Diversity has fostered the university’s advancement toward an institutionalized model for diversity. As part of that effort, the President’s Diversity Awards recognize individuals and departments that have made efforts to foster greater awareness, understanding and advancement of diversity and inclusiveness at TU.

Through this recognition, the campus community is encouraged to sustain change that focuses on the strengthening of student intellectual and social development; the purposeful development and utilization of organizational resources to enhance student learning; the enhanced awareness of and appreciation for the variety of backgrounds, perspectives and beliefs held by members of the TU community; and the establishment and maintenance of a welcoming campus environment that engages all of its diversity in service to students and organizational learning.
