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


To become a nationally recognized, globally engaged, teaching and research university.


The University’s mission and vision are achieved through an ongoing strategic planning process. Long Island University created its first-ever strategic plan, Education Beyond Boundaries: LIU 2020, which outlined several key initiatives to align our resources more effectively with the needs of students in the 21st century. LIU 2020 was the collective expression of the aspirations of the University through 2020.

Upon completion of our LIU 2020 strategic plan, new institutional priorities were guided by a consultative strategic planning process that occurred in Academic Year 2019-2020 and included students, faculty, institutional leadership, the Board of Trustees, and the full University community in dialogue and feedback. The University-wide process began in the Fall Semester of 2019 with 55 participants representing a broad cross-section of the campus community. The purpose of the task force was to develop a framework of preliminary goals and objectives for 2020 and beyond. The goals and objectives were shared with the entire University in the form of 21 roundtable meetings involving over 300 participants including faculty, staff, and students with more than 24 hours of discussion logged. Final goals and objectives were approved by the Board of Trustees in April 2020. These same institutional priorities will guide the university’s re-accreditation review with the Middle States Commission on Higher Education scheduled for Spring 2023.

Institutional priorities for the LIU2030 strategic plan are:

  1. Advance academic excellence through innovation
  2. Advance solutions for a sustainable global future
  3. Advance exceptional fiscal health and agility
  4. Advance student engagement through extraordinary and distinctive experiences

Special thanks to the LIU 2030 Strategic Plan Taskforce that led the strategic planning effort from a broad-section of the university community in Academic Year 2019-2020 for their vision and collaboration in an important consultative process.
