LINCOLN UNIVERSITY TO HOST LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE

 

Jefferson City, MO- High school students will learn the tools of leadership as part of a three-day conference scheduled for this summer on the campus of Lincoln University.  The Beta Zeta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. will host the Midwest Region Leadership Development Institute (LDI) June 20 through 22

 

The Leadership Development Institute is a component of the national Leadership Development/Citizen Education Initiative of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.  Held in five geographic regions of the country, the purpose of the LDI is to equip male high school students, particularly those in their sophomore through senior years, with the necessary skill set needed for leadership in the 21st century.  Over the three days, participants are offered insight from professionals, usually members of Alpha Phi Alpha, in various areas including public speaking, conflict resolution, community and civic engagement and educational enhancement. 

 

LDI organizers found Lincoln University to be a good fit to host the conference. “Lincoln University plays a key role in the development of future leaders and this partnership will strengthen the commitments of both the university and Alpha Phi Alpha in continuing that practice,” says Jerome Offord, Jr, President of the Beta Zeta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Fraternity, Inc.  Offord adds the fraternity’s decision to hold the event on the Lincoln University campus is part of an ongoing collaboration with the institution.  “The LDI continues our commitment to serve and support Lincoln University, just as we do with our annual fundraiser for the President’s Residence Restoration project.” 

 

Lincoln University President Dr. Kevin Rome says the institute will provide a great opportunity for the participants and the university.  “The unique opportunity will allow Lincoln University to not only share its heritage and history with these young men, but will also showcase the Jefferson City community as a wonderful destination to pursue higher education.” 

 

Those interested in registering for the Midwest Region Leadership Development Institute hosted by the Beta Zeta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. should contact Jerome Offord, Jr. at jeromeoffordjr@gmail.com for a registration packet.  Early bird registration runs through April 12, with regular registration ending on May 23.

MR. VOORHEES COLLEGE CROWNED MR. HBCU

Date for 11th Annual Mr. HBCU Kings’ Leadership Conference and Competition Announced

 

Jefferson City, MO- Anthony Hyland, Mr. Voorhees College, has been crowned Mr. HBCU 2014-2015.  Hyland was one of 15 kings representing the nation’s 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in the 10th Annual Mr. HBCU Kings’ Leadership Conference and Competition at Lincoln University.  As part of the event, the men spent several days in Jefferson City and on the Lincoln University campus engaged in activities and projects aimed at molding their leadership skills.  The culmination of the week was the competition and ball, held Saturday, February 8. 

 

Lincoln University President Dr. Kevin D. Rome, Sr. says the conference and competition paint a realistic picture of the student leaders on the HBCU campuses around the country.  “We see young men who are thinking about their futures and that of those around them,” says Rome.  “The campus kings set a higher personal standard and expect that same standard to be met by those around them.” 

 

Rome says the impact of the conference and competition makes it a necessity to continue into the future.  “Those early signs of leadership are very important to the future of the African American male, which is why it has been such an honor to host the Annual Mr. HBCU Kings’ Leadership Conference and Competition on the campus of Lincoln University and I look forward to continuing that into the future.” 

 

The annual event was founded in 2004 by then Director of Alumni Affairs at Lincoln University, Mrs. Benecia Spencer Williams.  “We are grateful to Mrs. Williams for being cognizant of what was needed in the HBCU community and her role in opening the doors of Lincoln University to meet that need.  As she moves into retirement, we will continue her vision and continue to offer a quality event that will provide the tools these young men need to succeed as they evolve from campus kings to leaders in society.” 

 

The 11th Annual Mr. HBCU Kings’ Leadership Conference and Competition will be held February 5 through 8, 2015.

         GOVERNOR NIXON ANNOUNCES PLAN FOR NURSING PROGAM

Additional space would bring increased academic offerings

 

Jefferson City, MO- A plan by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon could mean an expansion of the Lincoln University Nursing Program. Under the plan, announced Monday, January 20, Gov. Nixon will ask the legislature for funding to purchase the current St. Mary’s Hospital.  The $10 million request will also cover the cost of renovating the facilities. 

 

Lincoln University President Dr. Kevin Rome says the impact of the plan brings new opportunities for students. “The simulation labs we have on campus are incredible, but we will be able to expand that even further,” says Rome.  “There is no better laboratory than a hospital setting in which our nursing students can perfect their skills.”

 

The Lincoln University Nursing Program currently offers a two-year associate degree in nursing.  Beginning in Fall 2014, a four-year Bachelor of Nursing Science will be offered and the final associate degree class will matriculate in Fall 2015  http://www.lincolnu.edu/web/news/current/-/blogs/lincoln-university-to-offer-four-year-nursing-degree?_33_redirect=%2Fweb%2Fnews%2F2 .  In addition to the main campus offerings, the university will continue the associate degree completion program at Fort Leonard Wood. 

 

The additional space will also allow the university to expand its academic offerings to include a culinary arts program.
