Message from the CEO

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Touro College and Touro University Worldwide. I am honored to introduce you to the network of higher learning institutions that Dr. Edith Neumann and I have helped to put in place.

Touro has long been on the cutting edge of online learning. Touro University International, which Edith and I originally founded in 1998, was the first university in the world to offer an accredited, fully online Ph.D. program with no residency requirements. It gives me great joy to return to the Touro system as CEO of Touro University Worldwide and continue the important work Dr. Bernard Luskin began.

Through Touro University Worldwide, I have been able to realize my goal of creating a learning environment where students can receive a higher education degree on their own schedule, allowing them to pursue careers simultaneously. The Touro College and University System is a not-for-profit, visionary institution that aims to serve the underserved and promote academic success that translates into professional advancement. I believe in the mission of the college and have dedicated the majority of my life to upholding that mission.

Drawing from the Judaic principles on which the school was founded, Touro students receive a holistic education. Our graduates are not only skilled in critical thinking, problem solving and communication, but they are also ethical leaders and global citizens. I fully believe in this approach, and the high retention and graduation rates that TUW maintains serve as testament to the powerful learning environment we’ve built at Touro.

Again, thank you for your interest in Touro. We look forward to helping you succeed.
