Mission and Vision

soldiers reenactment


Lincoln University of Missouri, a historically Black, 1890 land-grant, public, comprehensive institution, provides a diverse population access to excellent educational opportunities through teaching, research, and extension services within a nurturing, student-centered environment.


Lincoln University will consciously and consistently fulfill the promise of the Soldiers’ Dream: education and empowerment for all.

All our activities, from an individual’s initial contact with the university through graduation, will be aimed at fostering a student-centered campus where positive relationships create lifelong engagement and commitment to our community.

Through communication and collaboration across our diverse constituencies, we will build citizens who are competent in the global marketplace while being connected to their local communities.
