Budget Planning

President Nelson discussed the fact that Lincoln has been able to meet budgeted expenses and accomplish building and program expansion over the past few years in large part due to additional student tuition and fee revenues and fund raising by the President.  Dr. Nelson stressed the necessity of all divisions within the university to look at staffing requirements as well as for ways of bringing in additional revenue as we move forward and as student enrollment reaches capacity. 

American Chemical Society

The American Chemical Society has removed Lincoln University from probationary status and has granted continued ACS approval of the University’s chemistry program.
