LIU aspires to being an influential and enterprising university engaged in close collaboration with the professions, business, industry, government and the wider community. To support this aspiration, the University has a number of policies and initiatives aimed at encouraging academic staff to engage in research collaborative activity in existing or emerging fields of strategic relevance and importance to LIU, which are additional to the delivery of academic teaching. This activity may include community service, research, and the provision of educational or consulting services, partnership building, and a range of other entrepreneurial initiatives.
LIU has a number of research facilities and academic resources. Most of the research facilities available are for academic purposes. Students can film, edit, develop photographs, rent cameras, and so much more on campus. Students also take classes in laboratories and apply the theoretical part of their courses during that time. There are a number of rooms for students to benefit from like the sound proof room for acting, the recording studio to record sound, and so on.
