Sponsor in Focus: Towson University

November 08, 2023 12:50 PM | Dawn Baker (Administrator)

Every month, MCEE highlights partners and sponsors who help make our work possible. This month, we’re highlighting a steadfast partner Towson University. 

Here is how Dr. Judy Harris, Associate Dean of the College of Business and Economics at Towson explains the value of our partnership, how our work aligns with their mission, and how together, we’re benefiting Maryland’s students. 

For more than 50 years, Towson University has proudly partnered with the Maryland Council on Economic Education, supporting its work in delivering high quality education focused on personal finance and economics to thousands of Maryland K-12 students and educators. It’s a part of TU’s collaborative work to leverage partnerships that increase learning opportunities, spur development, and identify creative solutions for students and communities.  

MCEE’s mission aligns perfectly with TU’s philosophy of leadership for the public good and the College of Business and Economics’ goal to partner with the community to create opportunities in and beyond the region. Every year, MCEE brings students, teachers, families, members of the business community and state leaders to the TU campus for workshops, competition events and their annual student awards program. Towson University faculty often teach MCEE workshops, courses, and serve as judges for student competitions. CBE students participate in paid internships in which they gain experience, academic credit, and connections with the business community. Over the years, thousands of school children have visited the College of Business and Economics’ finance lab to experience learning in a wall street trading floor environment, enjoy the dining hall, and envision themselves as future Towson Tigers. 

The partnership between MCEE and TU’s College of Business and Economics exemplifies how public universities and the business community can partner together to empower the next generation of citizens to improve their own well-being and the overall success of the state. 

We couldn’t have said it better! Our deepest thanks to Towson University for its ongoing support.
