As a pathway for professional development, TCALM: (1) builds on the strengths of individual participants through hands-on presentations and problem-solving challenges and team-building experiences that are designed to enhance an understanding of the challenges and opportunities in higher education today; (2) fosters greater exposure to the various schools and administrative departments of Touro College and University System; and (3) exposes participants to various leadership skills by enhancing knowledge of, among other things, organizational theory, problem-solving, communications and finances in higher education.

The program of instruction and activities consists of nine full-day sessions on one Thursday each month, beginning January 28, 2021 through December 16, 2021, excluding the months of July and August 2021.  Sessions will take place at various Touro locations throughout the New York metropolitan area, if conditions due to COVID-19 permit, or by ZOOM.
