LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, Pa. – Experienced administrator Dr. Lenetta R. Lee has been appointed as the new dean of the college and vice president for student success, President Brenda A. Allen announced today.


Dr. Lenetta R. Lee has been named the new dean of the college and vice president for student success.

Lee, currently dean of students and associate vice president of student affairs, was promoted to this position in March. The appointment is effective July 1.

“This new position will play a pivotal role in directing efforts to move us toward achieving our vision of becoming a national model for liberal arts education,” said President Allen. “Dr. Lee’s experience as a faculty member and senior administrator will be important as she collaborates with academic affairs and other units to facilitate student success.”

The senior leadership position is new at the University and replaces the vice president for student affairs, which has been vacant since December 2017. The position results from the reorganization of student services, campus life, and academic support functions to create a unit focused on student success.

Lee, a member of Lincoln’s Class of 1985, grew up in the local community. In 1999, she joined the Lincoln University faculty in the Department of Education where she earned tenure in four years. In January 2013, she assumed the role of interim dean of students and director of residence life.

Lee will oversee an office delivering a complex array of services and programs such as class deans, the dean of students, and the director of career services, among other units providing student support services, experiential learning, international programs, and public safety.
