From the Institution

Lincoln University is an 1890 land-grant, comprehensive institution which is part of the Missouri state system of higher education. Founded in 1866 by the enlisted men and officers of the 62nd and 65th Colored infantries, LU was designed to meet the educational and social needs of free African-Americans. While committed to this purpose, LU has expanded its historic mission to embrace the needs of a significantly broader population reflecting varied social, economic, educational and cultural backgrounds. Thus, the core mission is to provide excellent educational opportunities for a diverse student population in the context of an open enrollment institution.
