One University System of Maryland campus will soon host a center for Holocaust study for the state of Maryland, and some at Towson want to be that campus.

“I think it would be a pretty nice distinction if it were successful,â€? Towson Provost James Brennan enthusiastically said. “I think it’s a beautiful fit.â€?

A Maryland law passed last year established a task force to “advise the University System of Maryland of a pilot program at a campus chosen by the Board of Regents that creates a Center for Excellence on the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, Human Rights, and Tolerance that promotes education regarding the Holocaust, genocide, human rights, and tolerance.â€?
