Long Island University was founded on the principle of educating and empowering men and women from all walks of life. Through our mission of Access and Excellence, the LIU community remains committed, above all else, to the educational needs and interests of our diverse student body. We strive to cultivate and expand academic, professional, artistic and co-curricular opportunities, enabling students to realize their full potential as ethically grounded, intellectually vigorous and socially responsible global citizens.
