Under pressure, commission agrees to take second look at approving Towson program

August 11, 2023

Maryland’s higher education officials Thursday said they will review their decision to approve a new Towson University doctorate program that has come under fire from Morgan State President David K. Wilson and supporters of the historically Black institution as unfairly duplicative of their own program. With seven out of 12 members present, the Maryland Higher Education Commission, which establishes statewide policies for public and private colleges and universities, voted 4-3 in a closed-session meeting on June 14 to allow Towson University to establish a Ph.D. program in business analytics, prompting renewed calls for transparency and reform.
