CEO Welcome

I would like to recognize and welcome all active-duty, reserve, veteran and retired military personnel, as well as their spouses and immediate family members, along with DoD civilians that support their efforts in service to our great country. The staff and faculty members of Touro University Worldwide honor your service to our country and offer assistance to you in completing your education and meeting your professional and personal goals.

Our mission is to ensure that every military student that attends TUW is prepared for the day when their uniform comes off, and I believe that an education is the cornerstone in that preparation.

College, like serving in the military, is not easy, nor is it meant to be. Choosing the right college or university can be a difficult decision but I can assure you that if you choose TUW you will be treated with the respect you’ve earned and will experience second-to-none service and support as you complete your degree and walk across the stage at your graduation.

Touro University Worldwide is a private, nonprofit university and is regionally accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

I invite you to explore Touro University Worldwide and perhaps discover the university you’ve been searching for.

The staff and faculty members of TUW look forward to assisting you in meeting your education goals! We all thank you for your service to our great nation—past, present, and future!

Warmest Regards,
Roy Finaly, DMgt, MBA    
Interim Chief Executive Officer
Touro University Worldwide


Touro is a system of  non-profit institutions of higher and professional education established in 1970, with Touro College and University System being the parent of Touro University Worldwide (TUW). TUW is a nonprofit organization established by philanthropic visionaries who are committed to developing a passionate, connected learning community that can help students achieve their individual academic goals. Students at Touro University Worldwide are committed to social justice, intellectual pursuit and philanthropic duty. This philosophy is derived from the Judaic foundation on which the University was originally founded and a value system that welcomes all cultures and backgrounds.

In addition to providing both on-campus and online academic opportunities, the university also provides outstanding administrative services, cutting-edge technology and a highly qualified academic faculty. Another distinction and advantage relative to Touro University Worldwide being a nonprofit institution is that all resources are directed and reinvested in improving the quality of the already excellent education results at TUW.

No matter what degree or level of education you seek, Touro University Worldwide can help you achieve your goals and prepare you for a successful and enriching future and career.

Our Focus

Whether you’re still serving on active duty, as a reservist, in the National Guard, a separated or retired veteran, DoD civilian (non-contractor), spouse or child, our focus is assisting military students to meet their educational needs. You can expect a second-to-none, student-centered experience by a team of caring professionals with a singular focus and purpose—you, and the education you deserve.
