Official University Boilerplate Language

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University (PA) is the first of four Lincoln universities in the world and is the nation’s first degree-granting Historically Black College and University (HBCU). The University combines the elements of a liberal arts and science-based undergraduate curriculum along with select graduate programs to meet the needs of those living in a highly technological and global society. Today, Lincoln, which enrolls a diverse student body of approximately 2,000 men and women, possesses an international reputation for preparing and producing world-class leaders such as Thurgood Marshall, the first African American U.S. Supreme Court Justice; Lillian Fishburne, the first African American woman promoted to Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy; Langston Hughes, the noted poet; Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana; Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first president of Nigeria; Saara Kuugongelwa, the first female prime minister of Namibia and a myriad of others.
