The goal of the College is to enrich the Jewish heritage, and to serve the larger American community. This independent institution of higher and professional education under Jewish sponsorship has approximately 17,500 students. It was established to perpetuate and enrich the Jewish heritage, to support Jewish continuity, as well as to serve the general community in keeping with the Judaic commitment to intellectual inquiry and social justice.
Touro College’s mission is to strengthen Jewish life and perpetuate the Judaic tradition on the college campus, and to contribute to the building of a better society for all through educational opportunities.
The College seeks to strengthen Jewish identity and normative societal values by offering education programs serving the Jewish and general populations in communities nationally and around the world. Through one of its branch campuses -- TUI University, the College offers online programs and courses.
Touro also offers undergraduate and graduate programs in Jewish studies and liberal arts and sciences serving the diverse components of the Jewish community. It supports members of the broader community with neighborhood-based undergraduate programs. As an institution serving the general community in all its diversity, Touro College offers professional and graduate programs in such areas as education, law, medicine, allied health sciences, and business. Throughout its various programs, Touro College emphasizes academic achievement and quality in the context of a supportive and caring environment.
However, the College experience consists of more than classroom instruction as it seeks to foster an atmosphere of warmth, in which close faculty-student relationships, student camaraderie and individualized attention are nurtured in many ways.
