The Touro College and University System mourns the loss of Dr. Nathan Lander, of blessed memory. Dr. Lander played a pivotal role in the growth of Touro College and will always be remembered for his deep love and commitment to Eretz Yisroel, Am Yisroel and Toras Yisroel. He was a faculty member for many years at St. John\'s University and thereafter continued to teach sociology at the Lander Colleges. Dr. Lander, who served as Vice President of Touro College until his retirement, was a leader in the establishment of Lander College for Men. His vision of establishing a college that would attract outstanding students devoted to Torah and fear of G-d has been realized.
