The Touro College Research Council consists of faculty members and deans from the Undergraduate and Graduate Divisions and the professional schools in New York.
The mission of the Research Council is:
- To support and foster research activities across all of Touro’s colleges and schools in New York
- To expand existing and develop new research programs and research endeavors
- To support creation of a stable base of active and motivated faculty and long term research support for their work
The Council meets several times a year as it seeks ways to pursue President Kadish’s vision to increase the research footprint across the College and throughout the Touro College and University System.
Two subcommittees have been established by the Research Council to explore various services that can be provided to Touro faculty in support of their research endeavors.
- Library/Publications Advisory Subcommittee
- Touro College Research Day Planning Subcommittee
