Most adult learners delay going back to school because they feel it's too late or they won't be able to keep up in class.  SACE provides a supportive learning community where you can ask questions, get help, learn, grow, evolve, and achieve.  It's never too late. My experience in the undergraduate Management program at Lincoln was more than understanding concepts and theories.  I deepened my critical thinking abilities, built lasting relationships, and achieved something that I felt was out of reach.  I never knew that being taught by individuals who look like me would have such a significant impact or would mean so much to me.  Our people are truly extraordinary!  A community of black educators surrounding and investing in the lives of black students...wow...thank you!

Degree: Bachelor of Science in Management
