Now in its second century, Yeshiva University is the oldest and most comprehensive educational institution under Jewish auspices in America. It is an independent university that ranks among the nation's leading academic research institutions and, reflecting the time-honored tradition of Torah Umadda, provides the highest quality Jewish and secular education of any Jewish university in the world.
Since its inception the University has been dedicated to melding the ancient traditions of Jewish law and life with the heritage of Western civilization, and each year we celebrate as future leaders make YU their home. In September 2003, Richard M. Joel was inaugurated as Yeshiva University's fourth president in its 117-year history, succeeding Norman Lamm, who had held the office since 1976.
Our students study at our four campuses: Wilf Campus (500 West 185th Street), Israel Henry Beren Campus (245 Lexington Avenue) and Brookdale Center (55 Fifth Avenue) in Manhattan, and the Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus in the Bronx (Eastchester Road and Morris Park Avenue).
The undergraduate schools offer a unique dual curriculum comprising Jewish studies and liberal arts and sciences courses, and our graduate and affiliate schools offer tremendous opportunities for graduate and professional studies. While part of a multifaceted University community, each school retains the intimate character of a smaller institution.
The Yeshiva University is a Private university located in New York.
The Yeshiva University was founded in 1886.
The current president of Yeshiva University is Richard M. Joel.
