Academic Technology Uses
A review of technology uses in Lincoln University's academic program shows that many faculty are utilizing a variety of technology tools including WebCT, PowerPoint, videoconferencing, computer labs, and videotaping equipment to assist in their instruction of our students.

Courses for High School Students
The Cabinet discussed the idea of a "dual enrollment" program at Lincoln University, which would allow high school students to take college level courses while still attending high school.  The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management was asked to draft a policy for Cabinet review, which would permit dual enrollment of high school students at the institution should it be decided that such a program would best serve the interests of the University and the community.
