Grand Opening Ceremony for Long Island University's
New Riverhead Location on Nov. 30

Long Island University will formally open its newest location in Riverhead with a ribbon-cutting celebration on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2006.

"Long Island University at Riverhead brings challenging, highly respected graduate-level courses to central Suffolk County and the North and South Forks," said Jennifer Browne, associate provost of the new site. "We welcome our neighbors in eastern Suffolk County to discover quality private education in a convenient location."

Students pursue courses leading to degrees in childhood education, teaching students with disabilities, literacy education and certification in childhood education. Classes are offered during the evening and weekends.

Additionally, Long Island University's ground-breaking, fully online Master of Science and Advanced Certificate programs in Homeland Security Management operate from Long Island University at Riverhead. They are the first of their kind approved and registered with the New York State Education Department, and are among the first in the nation. "Law enforcement, public safety and private security professionals, as well as public officials and people with undergraduate degrees who are interested in a homeland security career, will find no better program in this vital and growing field," said Browne.

Long Island University's Riverhead site is located on the Eastern Campus of Suffolk County Community College (SCCC). Long Island University classes began in September 2006 in a 10,000-square-foot building, which features eight wireless classrooms as well as offices for faculty and administrative staff. More than 200 students can be accommodated at the site. Long Island University and SCCC are in discussions to develop four-year undergraduate degree programs together, with SCCC offering the first two years and Long Island University the second two years.

The celebration will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., with the official ribbon-cutting ceremony set for 5 p.m. Those interested in attending the celebration should reply to (631) 287-8301. Long Island University at Riverhead is located at 121 Speonk-Riverhead Road in the Long Island University Building. Visit www.liu.edu/riverhead for directions and more information.
