Student News
The Lincoln University Men’s Basketball team was defeated by Virginia Wesleyan in the Sweet 16, on Friday, March 10, 2006, in a very closely contested game.  Dean Briggs reported on an unfortunate incident after the game, which brought on some unwarranted negative attention.  Subsequently, his office received calls from local and state police in Virginia who apologized for the over zealous manner in which they responded to the incident.  They have indicated that formal, written apologies will be sent to the University.    

Department of Education Audit
The PA Department of Education’s review of the Auditor General’s Statement of Appropriations Earned Audit Report of Lincoln University for the year ended June 30, 2004 established there are no findings or recommendations.  The audit is, therefore, considered closed.
