In 1940 LIM College founder Maxwell F. Marcuse wrote, “The Laboratory Institute of Merchandising is probably the only school of its kind in America.” Its mission and methods were both unique and immensely successful. Seventy-five years, and seven thousand graduates later, the mission to prepare students for a successful career in the fashion industry has remained the same. The College’s leaders have continually sought guidance from industry professionals, especially through their involvement with the LIM College Industry Advisory Board. All three presidents, Maxwell, Adrian, and Elizabeth Marcuse, have listened closely and have not feared bold action. The administration’s willingness to adapt and expand the curriculum has kept LIM College relevant to the business of fashion for seventy-five years. Three generations of the Marcuse family have shared an undying passion for the College and its students. Elizabeth Marcuse now stands upon the strong foundation built by her predecessors and has taken LIM College to an entirely new level. With great respect for tradition and history, she is continually seeking new ways to refine and enhance the LIM College’s mission. Her commitment to quality at every level will no doubt continue to polish the already stellar reputation of the College and its quickly multiplying numbers of graduates. Not wavering in its charge, LIM College is well on its way toward the celebration of its first successful century.
