Chikwem, which are needed to meet the educational needs of the students. Mr. Carol indicated that IT is still working

They have begun to power up the heat to the buildings

President Nelson distributed
copies of Senate Bill 1038, passed by the PA legislature on October 9,
which appropriates the sum of $13,623,000 to Lincoln University
for the 2009-2010 fiscal year. This is
approximately the same amount received in 2008-2009 after the 6% cut. Unfortunately, however, the non-preferred
appropriations, which include funding for the four state-related
institutions (Lincoln, Temple, Penn State
and Pitt) have been held pending resolution of the Gaming Act.
There is no need for concern at
this time, as the Board of Trustees at its September meeting approved
which will permit us to continue to operate at this time.
Our best information is that attempts will be
made to negotiate the gaming issue.
However a recent notice to the members of the House indicated
that it is
not likely they will return to vote on anything until after November 3.
Overtime reports were distributed.
