Lincoln University Opens Women’s Center; Facility To Serve As Wellness Resource for University’s Female Students

Lincoln University, PA---Lincoln University opened its Women’s Center at Lorraine Hansberry Hall with a reception and ribbon-cutting on January 23. Here, Lincoln President Ivory V. Nelson, Ph.D. (fourth from right), and members of the Lincoln Network Society Board, celebrate the opening of the Women’s Center. The President’s wife, Patricia Nelson (fourth from left) Ed.D., heads the Lincoln Network Society, which created the Women’s Center. The mission of the Lincoln University Women’s Center is to assist female students in making healthy lifestyle choices in six targeted areas of human wellness. These areas focus on the intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, physical and cultural aspects of wellness. Initially, the Women’s Center operating hours will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1 p.m.-8 p.m.; and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Founded in 1854 as America’s first Historically Black University, Lincoln University combines the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of students living in a highly technological and global society.

The University is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences (biology, chemistry and physics); computer and information sciences; and biological and life sciences. In addition, Lincoln is ranked first in Pennsylvania in the same categories. From April 2003 through May 2004, the University will celebrate its sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, with an array of campus and external events, activities and announcements.
