Generation after generation, the students who have enrolled at LIU Brooklyn have come from varied, primarily urban backgrounds. Like their predecessors, many of today's students are new to America and new to the English language or are the first in their families to seek a university education. At LIU Brooklyn, all students find an academic community where cultural, ethnic, religious, racial, sexual, and individual differences are respected and where commonalities are affirmed. This requires the Campus to be open and welcoming, even as it maintains respect for intellectual, cultural and academic traditions. LIU Brooklyn recognizes both the faculty’s training and experience and the character of its diverse student body as two of its greatest strengths and challenges. No matter what their background or generation, students come to LIU Brooklyn to build the educational and intellectual foundations for successful personal lives and careers.
