Because of you we are innovative

Faculty Priorities

The value of a Touro University California education begins with our faculty. Your gift helps TUC support these leaders to continue offering an innovative curriculum, one-on-one mentoring and skill enhancement in their areas of expertise.

Faculty Development Fund

You can choose to support the classroom leaders who make a difference each and every day in our students lives by giving them the resources they need to enhance their skills in pedagogy and their specialty. This is a small funding program in support of professional development. The Faculty Development Fund was established to help support difficult to fund projects, and support our junior faculty who have not fully developed their own external support, as well as for those faculty members working in chronically under-funded areas. Full-time faculty in teaching and research, as well as librarians/archivists are eligible.

Endowed Chairs & Professorships

Touro University California may accept gifts for the purpose of creating an endowed chair, professorship, or faculty fellowship position. These positions are critical to retaining and attracting new scholars and continuing to build upon TUC’s academic excellence. Endowments in this category typically carry the name of the donor, of a person or institution designated by the donor, or of a person in whose name the University seeks funds to endow the position. Endowed chairs and professorships are awarded to our most distinguished faculty members who excel in research, teaching, and service.
