Campus Town Hall

On behalf of Shelley Berkley, CEO & Senior Provost and
Dr. Marilyn Hopkins, COO & Provost

Touro University California is a strong, caring and inclusive community where students, faculty and staff can rely upon one another for support during uncertain times. The bitterness and divisiveness evident in the recent presidential campaign, and days that followed the election, are a concern to many on our campus.

This is a good time for each of us to recommit to the values we set forth in our Strategic Action Plan and make sure we put these values into action as we move forward in the days ahead.

An informal gathering is being planned for Monday November 28 (3:30-5:30 PM) in the Wilderman Hall Living Room area for students, faculty and staff to come together as a learning community which values diversity and inclusiveness. We will have hot cocoa to take the chill off the day and brownies for good comfort food! Please join us if you can.
