Lincoln University, Pa. – Lincoln University leaders met with officials from the University of New York in Prague, Czech Republic and the Consulate of Mexico in Philadelphia on September 27 to discuss new collaborations.

Since 2014, Lincoln has partnered with University of New York in Prague through its membership in the College Consortium of International Studies, and is exploring new ways to collaborate.  Lincoln’s first students through the consortium studied at UNYP in 2015.  The Consulate of Mexico, however, is interested in learning about Lincoln’s involvement with the Mexican community and how Lincoln could serve as an option for Mexican students.
