Lower Oxford Sewer Growth – A recent article in the Daily Local News reported on sewer problems in the Lincoln Village.  Lower Oxford supervisors indicated that Lincoln University could possibly play a significant role in solving the problem.  The University’s Director of Physical Plant has been asked to inquire with the Department of General Services whether the Lincoln Village sewer system can be included in the University’s current plan to upgrade.  It must also be determined whether inclusion of the Village will increase the cost of the project.

Pennsylvania Praxis test results – Concern has been expressed over the recent Praxis tests results of Lincoln students.  The Dean has been asked to develop an action plan to bring Lincoln’s test scores up to an acceptable level.
