Mission Statement

The mission of LIU Riverhead is to provide exceptional educational programs through a faculty dedicated to teaching. To achieve this mission, the University is committed to excellence in teaching and research, and to high quality services that support students in becoming accomplished, ethical and thoughtful scholars who have advanced abilities to become effective practitioners, change agents and leaders in their field. The faculty and staff of LIU Riverhead are committed to providing excellence in onsite and online education for both our unique eastern Long Island community and global student population. It is through strategically focused Riverhead programs that students from all backgrounds expand their knowledge and prepare themselves for meaningful professional lives and service to their communities and the global marketplace. Our mission is in keeping with Long Island University's mission to provide excellence and access in private higher education. We operate on Margaret Mead's principle : “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
