"LIU Post is proud to share its growth and quality education through a new forward-looking and impactful branding campaign," Dr. Forestell said. "The new initiative is designed to build broader recognition of the value of an LIU Post education, differentiate the institution from its private and public competitors, and continue to raise the university's profile nationally and internationally."
