Paul Glasser Named Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Touro

(Courtesy of Touro College) Paul S. Glasser of Teaneck, New Jersey was named vice president of institutional advancement at Touro College and University System, Dr. Alan Kadish, Touro president, announced today. Glasser has had an illustrious career in non-profit development and management—directing fundraising campaigns, board relations, major gift solicitations and event planning for a number of noted Jewish organizations.

As Touro’s vice president of institutional advancement, Glasser will direct the college’s fundraising initiatives and build and manage the required infrastructure and operations for the philanthropic enterprise. He will plan and implement an annual fund campaign, major gift initiatives, capital campaigns and develop a department of alumni relations.

“Everyone at Touro is dedicated to academic excellence and meeting the needs of the students, first and foremost. There is a perspective on intellectual inquiry which pervades the many schools and program. It is a commitment to create that kind of a student and professional who will live their life on a higher plane that attracted me to Touro. Building a development department while initiating a new level of major gifts for many of the Touro schools and programs is a both a challenge and an opportunity. The time appears to be right for great success in these initiatives,” said Glasser.

“My fundraising philosophy is simple—development is all about people and the cultivation of relationships with those who find the institution’s narrative compelling. My goal is to generate support for the wide-ranging programs so that Touro can continue to meet every important need the school identifies,” continued Glasser.

Glasser served most recently as associate vice president for institutional advancement at Yeshiva University, and previously as senior director of institutional advancement at the Orthodox Union. Prior to that role, he was executive vice president at the American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center. He earned a BA from Yeshiva College and completed graduate coursework in college administration at Columbia University’s Teachers College. “We are very pleased to have Paul Glasser join our staff to serve Touro in this critical role and look forward to benefiting from his wide-ranging experience and skills in this arena,” said Dr. Kadish.
