Coordinates: The Lander College for Men is a private Men's division of Touro College located in Kew Gardens Hills, New York. Its stated goal is to provide a rigorous college curriculum while maintaining a traditional Yeshiva environment with the affiliated Beis Medrash L'Talmud. Generally, its attendees are students who have attended post-high school programs studying Talmud prior to their attendance, primarily in Israel.
Background and history 
The Lander College for Men opened in the fall of 2000, and before long moved onto its 7-acre (28,000 m2) campus in Kew Gardens Hills, NY. It graduated its first class in 2003. Geoffrey Alderman, who was a Vice President of Touro College, was Dean of the Lander College for Men from its inception, and served until the end of February 2002. He left to work at American InterContinental University in the UK. The current dean of the Lander College for Men, Dr. Moshe Sokol, succeeded him at that time.
In the biography of Rabbi Dr. Bernard Lander,  it is stated that the Lander College for Men was created partially in response to dissatisfaction with the liberalization of Yeshiva University during the tenure of Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm.Empty citation (help) In response to this, some of Yeshiva University's rabbinical faculty, specifically Rabbis Abba Bronspigel and Yehuda Parnes, decided to leave the school.Empty citation (help) With the assistance of Rabbi Dr. Bernard Lander, they created a school with the goal of providing a more religious and more challenging Yeshiva environment than that of Yeshiva University.
Faculty and staff 
The rabbinical staff of Beis Medrash L'Talmud has a number of well-respected figures in Jewish education, including the Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Yonason Sacks, Rabbi Yehuda Shmulewitz, the Menahel, and Rabbi Moshe Bamberger, the Mashgiach Ruchani. Other maggidei shiur include Rabbis Yehuda Parness, Azarya Berzon, Dovid Mirsky, Ephraim Tenenbaum, and Eliyahu Soloveichik (son of Rabbi Aharon Soloveichik).
The Lander College for Men is also host to a number of well known educators, among them, Rabbi Dr. Moshe Sokol (Ph.D., Philosophy, University of Pennsylvania), Dean as well as professor of literature, Dr. Kenneth Bigel, professor of finance and business ethics and Deputy Chair of Business (for the Lander College for Men) at Touro College, and Dr. Ann Shinnar (Ph.D. in biochemistry from Princeton University - postdoctoral research at Harvard University, Rockefeller University, and the University of Pennsylvania), a biochemist who has also worked as a Senior Scientist in a biotechnology company and is an inventor with eight patents.
Academic environment 
The Lander College for Men offers a wide variety of courses. A wide variety of degrees can be obtained on campus, while a dozen more can be earned in conjunction with Touro campuses in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Miami, and Los Angeles. The average SAT score has increased since the school's inception, and been above 1200 (excluding the writing section) in most recent years.
The vast majority of students in the school transfer from Israeli institutions focusing on post-high school full time Judaic studies, where most have studied for multiple years. The school has a Yeshiva program, in conjunction with the associated Beis Medrash L'Talmud, for full time Judaic studies for students who are either pre- or post-college. In accordance with school policy, all students are required to pray with the school's prayer services thrice daily. All students must also attend the morning program of Talmud studies, usually from 9:15am until 2:30pm, each Sunday through Friday, with a break for lunch (the schedule varies by day). Following afternoon prayers at 2:30pm, academic classes start, Monday through Thursday, lasting until 7:00pm or so for most students. Night Seder (evening Judaic studies) from 8pm until 10pm is also officially mandatory.
The Lander College for Men, along with the other related schools under the Touro aegis (which are not differentiated for this purpose,) have ranked nationally in the top several universities for passing several sections of the CPA exam, including the Business Environment and Financial Accounting and Reporting sections.
The Lander College for Men boasts an active and cohesive student organization. The student organization was informally started and managed by Rabbi Daniel & Ziva Glanz and functions under the Office of Student Life. It is currently chaired by Rabbi Ariel Kopitnikoff.
In addition to the Beis Medrash L'Talmud Kollel (for those who finish college and want to continue Torah study) there is the Kollel Elyon, an advanced institute of higher Torah study. The Kollel Elyon is a group of top students that is designed to enhance the level of learning in the yeshiva.
The Lander College for Men has recently developed an active alumni society, led by the President of the Alumni Society, Dr. Moshe Ornstein, in conjunction with the college liaison, Rabbi Aryeh Young, Director of Alumni Affairs for LCM.
Extracurricular activities 
The Lander College for Men has an active club program, sponsored by the student government. However, due to the small size of the college, many clubs have difficulty getting enough students to join, and often last only a few years. Past and present clubs include the Lander Investment Group, the Lander Historical Society, the Lander Mathematics Society, Biology Club, Anatomy Club, Psychology Club, and the Political Science Club, the Chai (Community Health Awareness Initiative) Club, the Accounting Club, the Creative Writing Club, and the Surfing Club.
There are also some intramural sports, including football, basketball, and baseball, on Friday and Sunday afternoons.
