Touro University Worldwide’s story starts with the founding of Touro University International (TUI). Dr. Yoram Neumann and Dr. Edith Neumann established TUI in 1998; it was the first university in the world to offer a regionally accredited doctorate program online with no residency requirements. In 2007, TUI was sold to a private equity group. In 2008, Dr. Bernard Luskin founded Touro University Worldwide to replace the educational void that the sale of TUI left. In keeping with its founding mission and principles, Touro University Worldwide prides itself on its Judaic foundation and the values that this represents. Those values involve a commitment to social justice, intellectual pursuit and service to society and the underserved.
TUW offers online programs leading to associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees from the following schools:
- School of Business
- School of General Studies
- School of Health and Human Services
