SJU to open Long Island graduate center

The University announced last week that it has leased new space for a Long Island Graduate Center in Hauppauge, NY. The announcement, sent by University Provost Robert Mangione, Ed.D., said the center is part of the school’s effort to enhance its teaching and learning environment.

“St. John’s is committed to continuing to offer quality graduate education programs on Long Island,” Mangione wrote in the email. “This new, centralized location provides us with the opportunity to serve our current students and to expand the academic offerings at this location.”

The center will serve Long Island-based students in the graduate programs through the School of Education and St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Six state-of-the-art classrooms will be in the one-story building. It will also have video-equipped conference rooms, offices for full-time faculty based out of LI, gathering spots for students and space for special events.

According to Mangione, SJU plans to open the facility in June 2017. It replaces its former Oakdale campus, which was sold in September 2016.
