It is clear that many care deeply for the Hutton House Lectures, a long-standing program at Long Island University. We share the community’s love for Hutton House, and we are inspired by how it will evolve. We appreciate this opportunity to share the vision for Hutton House and the plans for the LIU School of Professional Studies.
Hutton House Lectures are known throughout our community for rich offerings that give seasoned learners new perspectives on the world around them. Under the leader- ship of Dr. Kay Sato, Hutton House provided insightful lectures with an emphasis on the liberal arts taught by accomplished scholars in their fields. The lectures are and continue to be a staple for area residents. We are appreciative of Dr. Sato’s efforts and thank her for her service to LIU and to the community. We envision building upon Hutton House’s solid foundation to create a nationally recognized school of professional and lifelong learning. We will be welcoming new lecturers, including former New York Times correspondent Lisa Pulitzer; USA Today travel journalist
William McGee; CEO of the Theodore Roosevelt Association Tweed Roosevelt; former Assemblyman Harvey Weisenberg; Consumer Reports’ Associate Communications Director Doug Love; and DNA Scientist Molly Hammell.
In addition to Hutton House, the core of the School of Professional Studies consists of the following programs:
· Global Institute, led by Trustee and Chairman, the Honorable Steve Israel, draws upon unparalleled experience in geopolitical policy and global affairs by accessing world leaders and experts in forums unlike any provided within higher education.
· Hornstein Center for Policy, Polling and Analysis conducts independent polling, empirical research, and analysis on public issues.
· Through the leadership and philanthropic support of T. Denny Sanford, LIU supports entrepreneurs, innovators, educators, and philanthropists through the T. Denny Sanford Institute for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, the Sanford Education Programs, and Sanford Philanthropy.
· Center for Gifted Youth is entering its 40th year in providing K-8 programming for gifted students.
· Professional Education provides programs for individuals who are looking to advance in their current career or transition to a new one. Programs will include certificate programs, enrichment courses, and networking opportunities.
We value your feedback. Our pledge to you is to serve the community by continually improving and expanding experiences for students of all generations.
