Physical Plant
The new student dorm is expected to be ready by the end of July for staffing by the Resident Advisors (RA’s).

Administrative Timesheets
After a recent audit of employee benefits, the Internal Auditor has made a recommendation that future reporting of administrative time reported on manual timesheets be done on an actual basis.  In order to accomplish this, a monthly reporting of time from the 16th of one month to the 15th of the following month must be implemented.  The office of Human Resources and the Business Office will work to implement this change by the July time period at the latest.

Enhancing Admission Strategies
The Office of Development and External Relations along with Student Affairs and Enrollment Management have been charged with the task of developing a workshop for Lincoln University admission counselors on how to effectively market the University to prospective students.  

Campus Philly
Vice President Hill has been designated campus liaison for a joint research project of Campus Philly, Knowledge Industry Partnership (KIP), and the City of Philadelphia Department of Commerce.  The project involves an online survey of student attitudes about their time spent in the region and their participation in off-campus activities.
