Our Mission and Vision
Keeping with the founding values of Touro College, our vision is to help build a better society through improving the overall health and education of all individuals, families, and communities.
Inspire and educate ethical leaders in pharmacy through a collegial culture, research, scholarship, and expanded experiential opportunities with a commitment to excellence. We will establish partnerships to improve the health and wellness of the underserved in Harlem and beyond. The College will advance the pharmacy profession by preparing students to practice, with a focus on public health, in an evolving health care system.
