Convey Towson’s message to the external community.
Provide “spokespersons” statewide to tell the Towson story.

Collect and examine data about students to ensure that we can tell the story of who they are, what they are doing, and what they are learning as a result of their Towson experience. Develop a comprehensive assessment plan to document learning outcomes for student development.

Launch a marketing campaign to bring the Towson story to the external community.

Develop a “What’s New at Towson Today” periodic postcard to targeted external audiences.

Take intellectual resources “on the road,” for example an RESI breakfast seminar to business leaders in other parts of the state. Serve in leadership roles in the GBTC,

Ensure that our legislative goals are integrated into our public relations goals.

Totally redesign our Web presence to better tell the Towson story and to facilitate information retrieval.
