A partnership with MEDA, LMD and USM

Highlighting Economic Development and Higher Education in Maryland

  • This event has passed.

Partnerships between higher education and economic development are key to Maryland’s economy. Join us for the second in a series of conversations that highlight these unique partnerships. Towson University plays a vital role as an anchor institution. TU supports businesses in the region, creates new opportunities for its students, and actively participates in efforts to drive innovation, small business growth, and fuel strategic “place-making” efforts. Join us as we highlight the value of partnerships and hear from Maryland’s economic development leaders and Dr. Kim Schatzel, President of Towson University.
