From its beginning in 1970 in New York City, Touro University was founded on the belief that education is key to a successful democracy and providing equal opportunity to all citizens.
The name of the non-profit university comes from Judah Touro and his father, Isaac. Isaac was a leader in the colonial period in America. Judah followed in his father’s philanthropic footsteps in the early days of the United States, endowing churches, schools, cemeteries, parks, and hospitals.
Their dedication to the ideals of democracy and education continue to provide the foundation for the mission of Touro University Worldwide.
A Pioneer in Online Education
In the mid-1990s, Dr. Yoram Neumann and Dr. Edith Neumann developed an online higher education school for the Touro College and University System. In 1998, they founded an international online school that was the precursor for Touro University Worldwide. The school became the first to offer a regionally accredited doctorate program online with no residency requirements.
From this beginning, Touro University Worldwide was founded in 2008 with a home base in Cypress, California. The school offers degrees to thousands of professionals each year who want to further their career by gaining skills that keep up with marketplace trends.
