LIM College has been through many changes throughout its 75-year history, but its mission has remained the same: to prepare its students for successful careers in the business of fashion.
As the third generation to head the college, Elizabeth S. Marcuse has been in the president’s role for 13 years. Her grandfather, Maxwell F. Marcuse, founded the school, formerly known as the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, in 1939 as a one-year certificate program exclusively for women. Today, the college has morphed into a master’s degree-level institution with a bustling undergraduate program, multiple graduate programs and a growing global footprint. The school’s academic ascension was paved by Marcuse’s father, Adrian G. Marcuse, the previous president.
