General Information About Long Island University-Brooklyn Campus
Expressed in its still-relevant motto “Urbi et Orbi,” the mission of Long Island University since 1926 has been to open the doors of the city and the world to men and women of all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, who wish to achieve the satisfaction of the educated life and to serve the public good. The institution’s mission is to awaken, enlighten and expand the minds of its students. As the original unit of Long Island University, the Brooklyn Campus has enrolled and educated generation after generation of students from varied, yet primarily urban backgrounds. Like their predecessors, many of today's students are new to America and new to the English language and often are the first in their families to seek a college education. At the Brooklyn Campus, students find an academic community where cultural, ethnic, religious, racial, sexual and individual differences are respected and where commonalities are affirmed.
