Lincoln University of Missouri and Morris Brown College Forge Partnership to Boost Student Success

Abbey Tauchen | April 29th, 2024

Lincoln University of Missouri (LU) and Morris Brown College (MBC) have formalized a memorandum of understanding (MOU) aimed at enriching educational opportunities and amplifying career pathways for students. This collaboration will provide opportunities for MBC students to pursue graduate degrees through LU Online. This strategic partnership marks a significant milestone in the efforts of both institutions to empower students and champion academic excellence.

Lincoln University has embarked on a nationwide initiative to expand their support of students seeking graduate degrees through its online graduate degree programs offered under LU Online. These programs, including the Master of Arts in Higher Education (HBCU concentration), Master of Education in K-12 Administration and Supervision and the Master of Business Administration, are designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary for career advancement.

"This partnership with our fellow HBCU marks a pivotal milestone in our journey toward collective progress,” says Lincoln University President Dr. John Moseley. “LU Online embodies our commitment to empowering every student to reach their fullest potential, and through our collaboration with MBC, we're not only expanding educational access but also fostering an environment where success knows no bounds. We are excited to embark on this journey with our partners at MBC — united in our dedication to seeing every student thrive and reach their graduate degree goals.”

Under the leadership of President Dr. Kevin James, MBC has experienced a remarkable resurgence. Dr. James's commitment to ensuring that every graduate of MBC is equipped for success in their chosen field has been pivotal in driving the college's mission forward.

Recognizing the shared goals and complementary strengths of both Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), the MOU formalizes the partnership between MBC and LU. Through this agreement, Morris Brown College students can pursue graduate studies at Lincoln University through LU Online, beginning this fall.
