The Towson University Alumni Association Board of Directors supports President Maravene Loeschke and her commitment to advance our alma mater's focus on student success and academic excellence.
Since Ms. Loeschke's arrival, Towson alumni have witnessed countless examples of her enthusiasm and devotion to Towson University. Her love for students is evident in everything she does.
Dr. Loeschke's leadership — transparent, compassionate, inclusive and decisive — has served her well in making difficult, sometimes heart-wrenching decisions. These are the hallmarks of a strong, effective president.
Calls for Ms. Loeschke to step down are uncalled for. Such criticism demonstrates a lack of appreciation for the goodwill she has earned from the overwhelming majority of Towson University faculty, staff, students and alumni.
Throughout her decades-long association with Towson University, Ms. Loeschke has exemplified the values we hold dear: learning, service and an enduring sense of community.
We stand firmly behind fellow alumna Ms. Loeschke as she leads Towson University to an even brighter future.
