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 Drs. Yoram & Edith Neumann put in place.

Touro has long been on the cutting edge of online learning. Touro University International, which Drs. Yoram & Edith Neumann 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 step into Dr. Yoram Neumann’s shoes as a CEO of Touro University Worldwide (TUW) and continue the important work and legacy that Drs. Yoram, Edith Neumann, and 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, which allows them to pursue careers simultaneously. The Touro College and University System (TCUS) is a not-for-profit, visionary institution that aims to serve the underserved and promote academic success that translates into professional advancement. TUW continues with the TCUS mission, which I believe and have dedicated more than 20+ years of my life upholding that mission.

Drawing from the Judaic principles on which the TCUS was founded, TUW 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 have built.

Again, thank you for your interest in Touro University Worldwide. We look forward to helping you realize and succeed your educational goals.
