TU150 Economic Impact Study

This year marks Towson University’s 150th Anniversary. To celebrate, the Regional Economic Studies Institute (RESI) conducted a study regarding the impacts Towson University has had on Maryland’s economy and its communities since opening in 1866. RESI’s researchers and economists used information regarding the University’s operations, graduates, alumni giving, TU Foundation giving, student spending, and events to estimate these impacts. It is clear from this comprehensive report that Towson University contributes to Maryland’s economy in numerous ways, everything from the most obvious – students spending money in our community – to the most long lasting – our talented graduates living and working within our state.
