Touro University Nevada

Touro University Nevada (TUN) is a private Jewish-sponsored higher education institution in Henderson, Nevada. Founded in 2004, it is part of the Touro College and University System, which consists of 29 schools in five countries. TUN and Touro University California comprise Touro Univeristy Western Division, which is overseen by chief executive officer and senior provost Shelley Berkley. TUN provides educational programs in health care and education.

Although it accepts students of all faiths and backgrounds, TUN has a strong Judaic foundation. The university follows the Jewish calendar, including the observation of the Sabbath. Offices at the university close at 3:00 p.m. on Fridays and religious holidays to ensure that faculty, staff, and students can prepare for the Sabbath. In addition, all food served at TUN is kosher.
