LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA – Lincoln University President Robert R. Jennings offered an ambitious vision for the university’s future in his inaugural address as the 13th president of the university.

Dr. Jennings not only called for improvements or increases in enrollment, international student recruitment, retention, infrastructure, programs and courses, faculty development and assessment, distance learning, research grants, and fiscal management, but also outlined how it would be achieved amid a looming financial crisis.

“Under my leadership, Lincoln University will contribute its intellectual and creative expertise in developing innovative approaches to meet the changing needs of its communities and society at large,” said Dr. Jennings. “Thus, my vision is that the University will be a progressive growing institution with an expert workforce that delivers aggressive and comprehensive programs marked by effective support systems, efficient operating principles and sound fiscal practices.”
