Having recently been elected president of the Towson University Alumni Association, I am extremely honored to serve alumni and students, and to help the university achieve its goals and objectives. I greatly appreciate the confidence expressed as I follow in the successful footsteps of our long-serving Alumni Association President Lance Johnson ’93.

I will continue and accelerate efforts initiated by consultants to have the Alumni Association function as a more self-directed, transparent entity. This will facilitate clear and consistent communication with a focus on greater outreach and service to all TU alumni in a structured, programmatic way. We intend to help all alumni achieve their academic, professional and personal goals. I believe the key to building and/or re-building long-term relationships with our alumni is to connect and engage with them on a personal level with a high degree
of consistency and predictability.

“Our outreach will be consistent with the university’s strategic plan.”

TU has distinguished itself as a jewel in the University System of Maryland crown through academic and social achievements regionally and nationally. As we strive to serve and expand our alumni base in various regions around the United States, our outreach will be consistent with the university’s strategic plan. These efforts have proved to be effective, and will continue with upcoming alumni events in Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles.

As the evolution of Towson University continues, I am excited about the opportunity to be directly involved and to favorably impact TU students, alumni and other stakeholders. I look forward to seeing many of you on campus in the near future.

In the meantime, feel the roar of the Tiger.

Anthony Hamlett ’76
president, TU alumni association
