About Touro College

Touro College is a Jewish university, with sister institutions in France, Germany, Israel, and Russia, and branches in California, Florida, and Nevada. Some 17,500 (Jewish and non-Jewish) students are enrolled in its various schools, which offer associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees in business, education, and law, as well as professional degrees – more... in osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, law, and other fields. Touro also operates New York Medical College. Dr. Bernard Lander, a social behavior and Jewish studies scholar, founded Touro College in 1971 to teach Jewish and secular subjects. The college is named after Judah and Isaac Touro, who founded the Touro Synagogue in 1790.

Lander, an orthodox rabbi, died in 2010. He was one of the longest-serving college presidents in the country. Senior provost and medical doctor Alan Kadish was selected to replace Lander.

Under Lander's leadership Touro College grew quickly from a small school with 35 students to a multi-campus college with thousands of students. Touro continues to expand. It assumed control of New York Medical College in mid-2010. The Catholic-led medical school remains an independent institution. Some at the New York Medical College opposed the merger citing a well-publicized cash-for-grades scandal. In 2009 Touro's former director of admissions was found guilty of tampering with student transcripts and selling degrees. He was sentenced to two to eight years in prison. Nevertheless, the deal went through and now New York Medical College is a member of the Touro College and University System. – less
