GO GLOBAL WITH LINCOLN


Mission Statement

In support of Lincoln University's mission to foster in students an appreciation for competition and coexistence in the global marketplace, Lincoln's Office of International Programs and Services seeks to provide opportunities in international education through study abroad and university exchange programs and offers support services for international students designed to address their special needs and to facilitate their adjustment to the United States.  


Vision Statement

Study abroad at Lincoln University embodies both academic performance and an awareness and healthy respect for diversity that is facilitated by the study abroad experience. It enhances the educational process by engaging well- prepared students in qualitative and stimulating learning experiences in a variety of international settings. Study abroad allows students to experience foreign cultures through contact with faculty, students and the general populations of the host country, and, in societies where the native language is not English, it provides them with a functional and ever-expanding proficiency in the language.


     Global influences have prevailed at Lincoln University since its founding in 1854 when the founding fathers had as one of their original purposes, the training of young missionaries for service in Africa; the three members of the first graduating class of 1859 went to serve in Liberia. Lincoln continues to have an international connection and its emphasis on global education and empowerment courses has formed a core of its philosophy and mission for the past 15 years. In its current strategic plan document, Lincoln reaffirms its commitment to the provision of an education that reinforces the graduate for success in an increasingly complex and global environment. Empowerment courses across disciplines have been part of Lincoln's core curriculum for about 12 years.       

The Office of International Programs and Services was established to provide assistance and information to the international campus community. Our services include: study abroad activities, cross-cultural counseling and advising, immigration assistance, orientation programs, labor certification, international campus and community activities, and social and cultural activities. Today, Lincoln's 113 international students come from Bulgaria, The Bahamas, China, France, The United Kingdom, Ghana, Grenada, Jamaica, Liberia, Kenya, Mexico, Namibia, Nigeria, St. Lucia, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. And, Lincoln University regularly sends its American students to study in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas. This past year, Lincoln sent 19 students abroad for study and work experiences.
