Lion - Fall 2019 - Message From The President

Dear Friends of Lincoln University,

allen-brenda-headshot-350w.jpgIt is hard to imagine a year topping 2018-19. Reaffirmation of accreditation. Launch of the strategic plan. Congressman John Lewis, a civil rights icon, as our commencement speaker. Major grants earned. Faculty and student achievements. Campus physical improvements underway.

Building on the strategic plan and the self-study process, this year we are introducing the University’s Core Values: Respect. Responsibility. Results. These values are intended to guide the work and to be reflected in how things are accomplished at Lincoln University.

This issue of the Lincoln Lion Magazine explains the importance of receiving the re-affirmation of accreditation (page 15) and highlights areas of key importance from the strategic plan, including student success, academics, enrollment, campus infrastructure, community and government relations, advancement, alumni, and athletics.

Our students, faculty, staff, and alumni are leading their communities and changing the world. Experience the excitement yourself by making your plans now to attend Homecoming Saturday, October 12, or choose from a variety of upcoming events (listed on the back cover). I invite you to reconnect and re-engage, and see how Lincoln University is reimagining our legacy.
