Women's Center Mission

The mission of The Women's Center at Lincoln University is to promote and assist students in making healthy and positive lifestyle choices in six dimensions of human development: social, physical, intellectual, cultural, emotional and spiritual. The Women's Center provides programs and activities that result in self-empowerment. The direction of the Center's programs is driven by the input and needs of the campus and community.


  • Social Wellness emphasizes the connection to our world and community via healthy relationships.
  • Physical Wellness is caring for the body you have with all its abilities and limitations.
  • Intellectual Wellness focuses on knowledge and the process of knowing, which includes insight and creativity as well as skills.
  • Cultural Wellness is appreciating heritage and cultural diversity.
  • Emotional Wellness focuses on feelings about our world and our lives.
  • Spiritual Wellness is a reflection of how and where one finds meaning in life. It means finding peace in the universe and within.
