Male Achievement

Mission Statement

The Male Achievement of Lincoln University’s mission is to increase the academic, professional and social success of Lincoln University males in order to increase retention and graduation rates. The Lincoln University Male Achievement strives to provide resources for students to identify their purpose, create additional avenues for alumni and community members to connect with the university, and provide faculty/staff with new opportunities to contribute to student development.

Project Ignite Mentoring Program

The goal of the Project Ignite is to intentionally develop and shape an identified group of first year males throughout the academic year. Ultimately, the initiative will provide the proper training ground for those males to move into leadership positions at the end of the year across campus.  This initiative will also help those males increase identify and work towards their purpose.  Each Project Ignite mentee will be acknowledged as a ‘MISTER’ which stands for Man of Integrity, Sophistication, Tolerance, Excellence and Responsibility.  Mister Each Project Ignite ‘MISTER’ will be assigned three Lincoln University mentors: a faculty/staff member, an upperclassmen male and an alumnus.
