NEW LECTURE SERIES BRINGS NATIONALLY ACCLAIMED INTELLECTUAL TO LINCOLN UNIVERSITY 

 

Jefferson City, MO- Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, considered one of the nation’s most influential public intellectuals, will visit the Lincoln University campus on Tuesday, October 28, at 6:30 p.m. in Martin Luther King Hall-Thomas D. Pawley Theatre.   His appearance is the first in the Droppin’ Knowledge Lincoln University Lecture Series.  Admission to the event is free and open to the public. 

Dyson, an author and scholar, has been listed by Ebony magazine as one of the 150 most powerful African Americans.  His works, including Reflecting Black: African American Cultural Criticism; Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster; and Is Bill Cosby Right? Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost Its Mind? have provoked national conversations on race and class. Written in 1994, Dyson’s Making Malcolm: The Myth and Meaning of Malcolm X is considered one of the most important African-American works of the 20th century, while his I May Not Get There with You: The True Martin Luther King, Jr. is written to unveil the true radical nature of a man whom most remember or are taught was the ultimate peacemaker. 

Dr. Michael Eric Dyson is the first speaker in the Droppin’ Knowledge Lincoln University Lecture Series. The series was developed by Lincoln University Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Dr. Said Sewell.  The series is meant to bring engaging speakers to the campus and community.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY AND JEFFERSON CITY HIGH SCHOOL JOIN FORCES ON MILITARY LEADERSHIP COURSE

 

Jefferson City, MO- In a press conference earlier today, Lincoln University and Jefferson City High School officials signed an official Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on a course designed to offer students a glimpse into military life.  The Military Leadership Class is offered to junior and senior high school students.  The two-month long course, which began on August 14 with the start of the Jefferson City Public Schools’ year, will end on October 14.  The pilot program is in response to the prohibitive cost of Jefferson City High School offering a Junior ROTC program.  The cost of such a program is in excess of nearly $100,000 a year.

There are currently 22 students enrolled in the class, which meets at Jefferson City High School on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and at Lincoln University on Tuesday and Thursday.  The course is taught by LTC Ray Ferguson, Lincoln University Professor of Military Science; CPT Terence Staples, Lincoln University Assistant Professor of Military Science; MSG Daniel Murray, Lincoln University Senior Military Science Instructor; and National Guard Captain and Jefferson City High School teacher Charlie Ledgerwood. Class topics include military customs; army leadership; time and stress management; marksmanship (with paintball guns); as well as health and fitness.  Students will earn one hour of college credit upon completion of the course. 

“Our goal from this is to make them feel comfortable with college life so they will continue their education,” says Ferguson. “We answer any questions they may have as far as the military and ROTC.  Most importantly, we teach them how to be leaders in any capacity.” 

Lincoln University President Dr. Kevin D. Rome, Sr. says the new partnership draws upon the institution’s history. 

“The ROTC program is an integral part of our university, particularly as we consider that our founders were veterans of the Civil War.  Our founders believed in education for those who sought it and this partnership came about because these students and those who will come after them wanted it,” adds Rome. 

Students enrolled in the course will also be invited to participate in Lincoln University ROTC activities including Blue Tiger Open House, Homecoming events and the push-up squad at home Blue Tiger football games.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY RECEIVES CONTINUED ACCREDITATION

 

Jefferson City, MO- Lincoln University has received official notification of continued accreditation for another decade.  In a letter dated September 3, the Higher Learning Commission reports the university's accreditation has been extended through the 2022-2023 Academic Year. 
 
Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Dr. Said Sewell calls the reaffirmation an extension of the university's legacy of excellence. Lincoln University has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission for over five decades, and we have continuously met its high accreditation standards.  The reaffirmation by the commission for another 10 years (2022-2023) attests to the fact that we are meeting our strategic goals and keeping to institutional accreditation standards," says Sewell. "I want to thank the committee for their hard work and our students, faculty and staff for their dedication. Although we have been reaffirmed, we will continue to improve our quality and processes to ensure that our students are getting the best education in one of the best universities in the Midwest."
 
Lincoln University was founded in 1866 by the enlisted men and officers of the 62nd and 65th Colored Infantries.  The first recorded accreditation in university history is 1925, when the Lincoln University Laboratory High School received accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY REPORTS FRESHMAN ENROLLMENT INCREASE

Jefferson City, MO- An increased number of first-time college students are attending Lincoln University. Preliminary numbers indicate the freshman enrollment for the Fall 2014 semester increased 26% over the previous year from 424 students in 2013 to 536 students in 2014.  The university says improved recruitment efforts led to the positive enrollment numbers. 

“The faculty, staff, students and alumni have been instrumental in this increase,” says Dr. Kevin D. Rome, President of Lincoln University.  “In the past year we have purchased new recruitment software that has helped us to identify those students who are willing to commit to earning a Lincoln University education.  This software, in combination with other efforts including the development of Blue Tiger Day Open Houses and traditional recruiting trips, has put us where we are today with an increased freshman enrollment.  We will continue to build on and multiply this progress in the future.” 

Rome adds that after a student enrolls as a freshman, the entire university has an interest in seeing them graduate. “Recruitment is just one facet of the enrollment process.  Every person who works at Lincoln University must also take an interest in the retention of students from the beginning of their academic career through Commencement.” 

The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment will release the full Fall 2014 enrollment figures in October.  The total enrollment figure for Fall 2013 was 3,043 students.  Early reports show an increase of approximately 1,450 credit hours, which indicates the student body registered for more classes this fall.

Grant Program Paves New Roads for Small Farmers

GRANT PROGRAM PAVES NEW ROADS FOR SMALL FARMERS

 

Jefferson City, MO-A federal grant project led by Lincoln University Cooperative Extension (LUCE) will provide new opportunities for small farmers in southeast Missouri. Representatives from the Missouri Agricultural Products Cooperative (MAPC), located in Sikeston, Missouri, will pick up a refrigerated truck from the Lincoln University campus on Monday, July 14.  The truck, which was purchased with funds from a USDA Rural Business Enterprise Grant, will allow small farmers to travel greater distances to deliver fresh produce to major markets.  

 

As part of research that dates back to 2000, Project Investigator Dr. Emmanuel I.S. Ajuzie found that with five acres of land to farm, fruit and vegetable producers have the potential to earn higher profits than a row crop producer with 125 acres.  Ajuzie, the State Extension Specialist for the Agricultural Economics and Marketing Program contends for this to happen, producers must have access to defined larger markets, which are traditionally only open to corporate operations, such as Walmart and Schnucks.  The MAPC truck will allow producers to travel to the larger markets to sell their goods in bulk, creating the opportunity for a consistent profit. 

 

The MAPC was incorporated in 2010 by Lincoln University. The purpose of the cooperative is to address the greatest needs of those in agriculture in the rural communities, which are to find economic empowerment and to maintain their family farms. 

For more information, please visit http://www.lincolnu.edu/web/programs-and-projects/agricultural-economics-and-marketing or contact Dr. Emmanuel I.S. Ajuzie at ajuziee@lincolnu.edu or phone 573-681-5635.
