- Institutional Advancement
Over 40 years ago, Dr. Bernard Lander founded Touro University in the service of knowledge, compassion, and social justice. Dr. Lander was inspired to name the University in honor of Judah Touro, an 18th century Jewish philanthropist who dedicated his life to enriching the lives of all people, regardless of creed or color, through educational opportunities, spiritual outreach, and vocational enterprise.
That philosophy of giving lives on today at the campus of Touro University California, where daily our students and faculty combine individual development with a focus on the greater good.
