Brooklyn Campus[edit]

I'm having a hard time understanding this statement: "The theater's original Wurlitzer organ was used as a basketball court . . ." NameThatWorks (talk) 05:42, 1 March 2011 (UTC)


Inaccurate Information[edit]

Disclosure: I am employed by the university and prevented from updating content as a conflict of interest. Significant updates are needed to the information here, especially references to C.W. Post as the university formally changed the campus to LIU Post effective 2012. New schools, programs, and teams are missing. Numbers are also outdated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rachel at LIU (talkcontribs) 14:51, December 19, 2014‎

@Rachel at LIU: I will remove the COI tag so long as you keep the external links within the article to a minimum. Having too much of those appears to be WP:PROMOTION -- Orduin T 20:13, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
@Orduin thank you for your helpful comments. Rachel at LIU (talk) 20:16, 19 December 2014 (UTC)Rachel at LIU
Rachel, it's generally accepted by many editors for people with a potential conflict of interest to make minor or uncontroversial edits to articles e.g., updating out-of-date numbers, making simple and uncontroversial additions and deletions to lists just to keep them up-to-date. But when editors with a conflict of interest begin making significant edits that alter the tone of the article or are inherently controversial, that's a huge problem and one to which most editors will object. When in doubt, it's best to post suggestions to the Talk page to ensure that you're acting transparently and no one objects to any edits you'd like to make or have made for you.

No confidence vote and faculty lockout[edit]

This entire article reads like an advertisement posted by LIU administration. But the faculty lockout due to an impending no-confidence vote in President Kimberly L Cline by the Brooklyn campus and events leading up seem notable. http://www.liuff.net/blog/2016/08/31/press-release-liu-president-cline-locks-out-liu-brooklyn-faculty/ I'm not in a position to edit now; is any neutral editor paying attention to this article?

An editor from an LIU IP removed the lockout section on 29 November 2016, with the following summary: "The lockout information provided in inaccurate. This settlement was handle and is no longer active news." The lockout is sourced and remains active news as of this date. It is also notable as LIU is the first institution of higher education to lockout its faculty. I've restored this section and hope others continue to contribute to it.
