Learn. Liberate. Lead.

Since its founding more than 165 years ago, those three words have defined our mission at Lincoln University. We're dedicated to empowering our students with the knowledge, confidence, and connections to achieve success and rise to the top.

Lincoln University, the nation’s first degree-granting Historically Black College and University (HBCU), educates and empowers students to lead their communities and change the world.

We're dedicated to empowering our students with the knowledge, confidence, and connections to achieve success. When you choose Lincoln University as your workplace, you're doing more than just getting a job. You're becoming part of a campus community that is tight like a family and filled with people who look out for each other. You're becoming part of the latest chapter in a long and proud history of learning at the nation's first degree-granting historically black college and university (HBCU).

As our Alma Mater school song calls it, our "dear old Orange and Blue" has been devoted to and defined by our core values of respect, responsibility, and ultimately, results. Those values and our commitment to the success of our students have long attracted an interracial and international body of enrollees from our community, region, and around the world.

Since our founding in 1854, our impact has been tremendous. In fact, during our first 100 years, Lincoln graduated approximately 20 percent of the black physicians and more than 10 percent of the black attorneys in the nation. Our alumni have led more than 35 colleges and universities and scores of prominent churches. They also include U.S. ambassadors; mission chiefs; federal, state, and municipal judges; mayors; and city managers. Others have made names for themselves in creative and entertainment fields, including writers, directors, comedians, and film executives.

Established as The Ashmun Institute in 1854, the institution was renamed Lincoln University in 1866.

Located on 429 acres in southern Chester County, our main campus marries tradition and modern facilities, with sweeping pathways that encourage walking and contemplation within a safe and scenic landscape. Lincoln is within about an hour of several major cities: we are 45 miles from Philadelphia; 55 miles from Baltimore; and in Delaware, 25 miles from Wilmington, and 15 miles from Newark. These cities not only provide a variety of entertainment and leisure options but many important job and internship opportunities for our students.
