Lion - Fall 2019 - Lincoln’s Accreditation Reaffirmed

Lincoln University has been granted institutional accreditation for another eight years by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the regional accrediting body.

“Accreditation assures Lincoln students, their families, and all of our stakeholders that the educational standards and campus environment support student success,” President Brenda A. Allen said.

In a July 1 notice, Allen thanked employees for their “hard work and dedication to continuing the mission and vision of this great and historical institution.”

Accreditation is required to receive federal and state funding. The commission's reaffirmation of Lincoln's accreditation is an expression of confidence in the University's mission, goals, performance, and resources.

The commission’s decision follows a two-year effort by the University to demonstrate continuous improvement and ensure alignment with accreditation and federal compliance requirements.
