The Office of Campus ministry offers programs and services for Christianity, Catholicism, and Judaism. The staff are responsible for nurturing the spiritual development of LIU students. They coordinate diverse opportunities for students to participate in faith-based initiatives, leadership development, collaborative programming, and community service projects. They facilitate interfaith dialogues and forums to discuss the nexus between faith and issues pertaining to public life.
Campus Ministry is committed to addressing the diverse faith-based needs of our student body and encourage students to reach out to Roland Robinson to inquire about a faith tradition having a presence on campus.
In accordance with FERPA, students must grant parents and family members access to their grades. The student must complete a form with their Promise Coach to allow for this access.
Students should fill out a FAFSA form to see if they qualify for a work-study position. Students who qualify for work-study can be placed in a variety of offices around campus. Students who have completed Work-Study or were unable to obtain Work-Study from the Federal Work Study Program may apply for on-campus budget jobs working for a campus department and getting paid directly from that department's budget. At times, budget jobs may be difficult to get as most departments fill their support staff with Work-Study students. Students can also ask their professors if they have budget opportunities, or check Aramark (LIU Brooklyn’s food service), the pool and fitness center at Steinberg Wellness Center, Kumble Theater, the Library, and Admissions as these entities frequently have budget positions to fill.
LIU Brooklyn has many options for dining while on campus including Blackbird Café, Luntey Commons, Subway, Red Mango, and Pete’s Coffee. Meal plans are available for residents and commuters. For more information click here.
