First established to train teachers, Lincoln University expanded into a land grand institution, focusing on agricultural and industrial courses, before finally evolving into the university it is today. Every step of the way, our focus has remained consistent in providing a high-quality education to our diverse population of students.
At Lincoln, you'll learn in a student-centered environment with small classes (15:1 student to faculty ratio) and plenty of personal interaction with our expert faculty — more than 67% of whom possess the highest degrees in their fields.
Our robust student support services bolsters in-class learning, as does a variety of internships and hands-on learning opportunities, many of which are unique to Lincoln, thanks to our location in the capital of Missouri.
