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


On March 7, 2013, LIU named Kimberly R. Cline as its 10th president. Dr. Cline succeeded David J. Steinberg, who retired after 28 years as president in the summer of 2013. She is the first woman to lead the private, six-campus institution (which also includes LIU Hudson, LIU Riverbed, and LIU Brentwood).[9] Under her leadership, the university introduced several experiential learning programs that include student-run businesses on campus as well as startup incubators that give young entrepreneurs the support and space to collaborate, develop business plans, find investors, and grow ideas into small businesses.

In 1951, recognizing the educational needs of 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 launched a campaign that unified all campuses in name. C.W. Post is now LIU Post, the university's largest campus, at 307 acres of historic Gatsby-era 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 Pioneers and Tilles Center for the Performing Arts.
