The university’s emergency response team is currently working to combine the “Emergency Response Manual” and the “Crisis Response Manual” into one document.  The Committee will meet again on October 4th.  The combined document will be presented to Cabinet at a meeting during the month of October. 
The emergency response plans will include notification through the use of cell phones.  A campus warning siren has been ordered for installation atop of the Langston Hughes Memorial Library.  A text message warning system is also to be a part of the emergency response plan.
The University has been informed that the Lincoln University Upward Bound program will be funded for four years at $470,699/year.  We anticipate receipt of official notification in the near future.
