Long Island University (LIU)

Long Island University's mission is to provide excellence and access in private higher education to people from all backgrounds who seek to expand their knowledge and prepare themselves for meaningful, educated lives and for service to their communities and the world.



Long Island University (LIU) was founded in 1926 in Brooklyn, N.Y., under the guiding principle of educating and empowering men and women from all walks of life. LIU has grown into one of the nation’s largest private Universities, and remains committed to the educational needs and interests of its diverse student body.


LIU offers more than 500 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degree programs and certificates, educating more than 20,000 students each year across multiple campuses. The University continuously strives to cultivate and expand academic, professional, artistic, and co-curricular opportunities.

More than 500 full-time professors teach at LIU, with a significant majority holding the highest degree in their respective fields. The faculty includes numerous Fulbright Scholars, and in 2014, LIU was one of just nine master’s institutions nationwide to have four Fulbright professors teaching abroad.


LIU’s faculty also includes Academy Award winners, prominent journalists, award-winning authors, leading scientists whose research has contributed to significant medical advances, and many more experienced and accomplished professionals.


LIU Global’s immersive learning experience spans eight countries on four continents, preparing students for careers as global leaders in business, policy, humanitarian relief, social entrepreneurship, economic development, and environmental sustainability.
