Towson president says cutbacks of baseball, soccer painful but necessary [Opinion]
Recently, I announced with a heavy heart the discontinuation of men's soccer and baseball at Towson University. The decision was made after an extensive review following the initial recommendation from athletics leadership and the majority support of an independent task force charged to resolve three critical issues facing the university: long-term financial sustainability and affordability of the athletics budget; compliance with gender equity requirements of Title IX; and overall academic and athletic competitiveness of our Division I program.
