LEADERSHIP IN ATHLETICS

Towson University's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics reinforces leadership principles through programming and provides leadership opportunities on and off the field for student-athletes, coaches and staff.

The department's Student Services staff handles the Total Tiger programs, the community service involvement of student-athletes, the Tiger student-athlete leadership opportunities and student-athlete recognition programs.

Leadership Opportunities and Development Programs

Each university team and the cheerleading program selects representatives to serve on the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) to promote smooth communication between student-athletes and athletics administration, consistent support and interaction between all student-athletes, student-athlete growth academically and socially, and increased positivity on and off campus through service and outreach. The monthly meetings are open to all student-athletes.

Student-athletes also have the opportunity to represent Towson University at the campus, state, conference and national levels in the CAA SAAC, at conferences and roundtables and in outreach programs.

Community Service

Towson’s student-athletes take part in numerous community service, outreach and philanthropic activities throughout the school year, including organizing drives for blood donation (CAA Have a Heart Blood Drive); participating in charity runs and fundraisers, and volunteering at local schools, hospitals and community groups. The department completed more than 10,000 hours of community service in 2012-13.

The Total Tiger

The Total Tiger programs offer a variety of programming and guest speakers to support student-athletes’ development, enhance their university experience, and prepare them for life after graduation.
