Enrollment Size and Mix: Our planning tells us that we will grow by about 3,000 students between now and 2010. We have planned our growth and how we will make it happen. Our plan tells us we will grow by another 4,300 students between 2010 and 2015. That's an average increase of 600 students each year for the first five years and then 1,000 students each year for the following 5 years taking us from 18,000 students today to 21,000+ in 2010 and 25,000+ in 2015.

Community College as Partners
- dual admissions,
- dual advising,
- Towson programs taught on CC sites,
- Clearly articulated learning outcomes in general education: Faculty development implications.
Reputation with students and potential students – the recognition that Towson is a great place for an undergraduate education: small classes, contact with FT faculty in lower and upper division courses, strong liberal arts/majors, teaching (student/faculty interaction) is prized as a core value.
Reputation with other organizational/bureaucratic entities – more problematic and often not as salient as the first and is validated through more variable and ambiguous sources.
