Partnership with Korean University to Enhance International Research and Learning

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                         


(573) 681-6032

February 10, 2015




Jefferson City, MO- Lincoln University in Missouri has established a strategic partnership with Korea National University of Transportation that will offer faculty and students at both institutions increased access to research and learning opportunities across disciplines.


”As we prepare our students to be competitive in the global marketplace, partnerships such as this are key in creating opportunities that extend far beyond our campus,” says Dr. Kevin D. Rome, President of Lincoln University.  “The mission of Lincoln University is to offer learning experiences that include a diverse population.  This agreement with Korea National University not only will increase the diversity on our campus, but provides a location for international studies for our students.” 


Lincoln is establishing these types of memorandum of agreements with institutions around the world as it continues its internationalization efforts.  These partnerships are in line with the strategic plans of Lincoln University, as a whole, as well as that of the Office of Academic Affairs, both of which aim to bring stronger external relationships in support of research, creative and innovative activities.


Said Sewell, Ph.D., Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Korea National University Dean Oh Young-mi, Dean of International Affairs and Professor of Korean language and literature, signed the agreement on the campus of Lincoln University on January 27 during a two-day visit to Missouri by a delegation of Korea National faculty and administrators.


“This agreement between Lincoln University in Missouri and Korea National University speaks not only to our efforts of becoming one of Missouri’s destination universities, but also to our commitment to student success, faculty engagement and research,” said Dr. Sewell.  “As our world is becoming smaller due to advances in technology, we look forward to this agreement ending misperceptions and bridging cultural and educational differences. That is the essence of a university.  I look forward to faculty and students from Korea taking and instructing courses on our campus and vice versa.”


Dr. Keesoo Lee, Professor of Biology at Lincoln University, organized this agreement.  Dr. Ruthi Sturdevant, Interim Associate Provost for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College of Behavioral and Technological Sciences and Duwon Clark, Coordinator, International Student Services were on hand to witness the signing of this partnership.


President Rome and a delegation from Lincoln University will travel to South Korea later this year to tour their university and sign the agreement on their campus.

Statement on Petition to Rename Lafayette Street
(573) 681-6032
December 10, 2014 
Jefferson City, MO- For the last 148 years, the African American history of Jefferson City cannot be written without Lincoln University being included, and vice versa.  Through the years, the university has drawn countless students, faculty and staff to this community who have taken root here and whose families are now part of the tapestry of not only the area directly around the university, but throughout Central Missouri.  
A community begins as soon as one steps from your front lawn to that of your neighbors.  A sense of community begins when one considers our neighbors when taking action. In respect of the latter, Lincoln University is withdrawing the petition to change the name from the 600 through 1200 blocks of Lafayette Street to University Avenue.  We have heard the concerns of the community in terms of the historical and fiscal effects of such a change, so at this time the university will revisit other ways to brand this area as the university corridor, while still maintaining the historical integrity of this vital part of Jefferson City.
