LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA ~ Dr. Goro Nagase, professor of mathematics at Lincoln University, has established an endowment to provide scholarship to students majoring in mathematics and computer science.  The endowment bears his name.

According to Dr. Nagase, the endowment has reached its goal of $25,000 of which he donated $20,000.  He hopes the endowment will double with matching funds.

“The purpose of the fund is to increase the number of well-prepared, underrepresented minority students who graduate in the fields of mathematics and computer science and then go on to pursue graduate studies or professional careers in related fields,” said Dr. Nagase, who has a 36-year tenure at the university.

“The university family is very proud of the endowment that Dr. Nagase has established,” President Ivory V. Nelson said.  “We appreciate his diligent service over the years, and this is a testament of his hard work and love for the university.”

“I like Lincoln University because of the opportunities it has created for its students.  The students are good, and I like working with them,” said Dr. Nagase, a native of Tokyo, Japan.

Dr. Nagase earned a bachelor’s degree in zoology from the University of Tokyo, a master’s in marine zoology from the University of Hawaii and a doctorate in mathematical statistics from the University of Delaware.

He has won several awards, including the Lindback Distinguished Teaching Award in 1979, Honorable Mention, NAFEO (National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education) Research Achievement Award in 1991, Distinguished Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1998, and the Henry Cornwell Distinguished Teaching Award in 2007.

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University is a premier, historically Black University that combines the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of those 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 informational sciences; biological and life sciences.  Lincoln has an enrollment of 2,423 undergraduate and graduate students.
