It has certainly been a unique several months since the spring 2020 semester began and the COVID-19 pandemic changed all of our lives. This crisis has prompted a quick response from our team to ensure the well-being of the Touro community, while continuing to deliver the highest level of education to students.
Over the course of these past few months, we’ve transitioned to fully online classes, while our faculty and staff are working remotely and actively providing both academic and administrative assistance to our students during these challenging times. Classes will continue to be online for the remainder of the semester and if it is necessary to also offer virtual summer classes, we are fully prepared to do so.
As everyone adjusts to this new normal, we have started our COVID-19 Student Support Drive – a special fund that will provide much-needed support to our GST students who find themselves in need as a result of the global pandemic. All proceeds will be given directly to students as tuition scholarships.
Yet with challenges, come even greater opportunities. We have just onboarded a new Web & Multimedia Design Chair, Dominika Juraszek, who brings over fifteen years of combined experience in multimedia design and teaching. We have introduced a new Data Analytics concentration in the Master of Science in Information Systems program offering courses including Database Management & Administration, Advanced Database Administration, as well as Fundamentals of Data Analysis—and more.
Additionally, we’re still powering our informative professional development workshops that are available to the general public, in addition to current students, staff, and alumni, and can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection. To find out more about our upcoming events, click here.
If you’re a GST graduate who would like to share your success story with our audience, please reach out to James Shafer our Director of Marketing and Recruitment at email@example.com.
We hope you are all staying healthy and safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon, whether virtually or in person.
