LIU was chartered in 1926 in Brooklyn by the New York State Education Department to provide “effective and moderately priced education” to people from “all walks of life.”[2] LIU Brooklyn is located in Downtown Brooklyn, at the corner of Flatbush and DeKalb Avenues. The main building adjoins the 1920s movie house, Paramount Theatre (now called the Schwartz Gymnasium), the building retains much of the original decorative detail and a fully operational Wurlitzer organ that rises from beneath the basketball court floorboards.[3] The campus consists of nine academic buildings; a recreation and athletic complex that includes Division I regulation athletic fields; one on-campus and two nearby residential buildings; and an adjoining parking facility. The campus is home to the university’s oldest school, LIU Pharmacy (Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences), founded in 1891 as the Brooklyn College of Pharmacy,[4] and LIU Global, a four-year bachelor's degree program that allows students to live and study internationally in eight countries across eight semesters.[5] LIU Brooklyn is home to the NCAA Division I Blackbirds,[6] the George Polk Awards for excellence in journalism,[7] and Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts.

In 1951, in response to the growing number of families moving to the suburbs, LIU purchased an 177-acre (72 ha) estate known as Hillwood from cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and her third husband Joseph E. Davies.[8] Located in the town of Brookville on Long Island's Gold Coast, the original home, Warburton Hall, had been built by William A. Prime and was extensively renovated by Marjorie and her second husband Edward F. Hutton. Three years later, the campus was renamed C. W. Post, in honor of Marjorie Post's father. In 2012, the university renamed all campuses. C.W. Post is now LIU Post, the university's largest campus, at 307 acres of historic 1920s mansions, gardens, athletic fields, art studios and performing arts space, broadcast television and radio stations, an on-campus sustainable energy facility, and the only on-campus equestrian facility on Long Island. LIU Post is home to the NCAA Division II LIU Post Pioneers and Tilles Center for the Performing Arts. The school introduced its first online degree plan in 2004

On March 7, 2013, LIU named Kimberly R. Cline as its 10th president, becoming the first woman to lead the private, six-campus institution.[9]


LIU is administered by a president and board of trustees who elect the president.
