Making An Impact: Innovation at Towson University

For the past two years, the Division of Innovation and Applied Research published an annual report that outlined the impacts we were having across the state. This year, we took a broader view and included the big things that are happening across the entirety of Towson University. We looked at the teaching, research, and partnerships that are making an impact on the quality of life and economic competitiveness of our state.

Making An ImpactThe Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Applied Research 2015 Report, Making An Impact, highlights the work our faculty, staff, and students have accomplished in collaboration with partners around Maryland.

As you read the report, you will find

  • TU’s applied research addresses real-world issues in healthcare, government, education, and business.
  • TU’s economic and workforce development programs provide critical skills for the region’s workforce.
  • TU’s entrepreneurial programs support creative empowerment and enterprise development for students and small businesses.
  • TU’s community partnerships and relationships enhance student learning and enrich our communities.

I am proud of the work Towson University has done over the past year. And, I think you will find the big things we do today will have lasting impacts on our communities for years to come. We truly are making an impact and improving the quality of life and economic competitiveness for Marylanders.
