About Lincoln University

Lincoln University (LU), a historically black college or university (HBCU) connected to the state, is located close to Oxford, Pennsylvania. As the exclusive Ashmun Institute, it was the first HBCU in America to award degrees when it was founded in 1854. It has been a public institution since 1972. 
Its main campus is located on 422 acres in Oxford, Pennsylvania, which is in southern Chester County. The institution maintains a second location in University City, a district of Philadelphia. At Lincoln University, there are about 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in various programs. It is a member institution of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

Despite the fact that the majority of its students are African Americans, the university has a long tradition of welcoming students of all races and countries. Women have been granted degrees since 1953; in 2019, there were 66% female undergraduate students. 

Ashmun Institute, now known as Lincoln University, was founded in Hinsonville, Pennsylvania, by Quaker Sarah Emlen Cresson and Presbyterian minister John Miller Dickey.
They named it after the religious and social reformer Jehudi Ashmun. They established the institution to provide education for African Americans, who had few opportunities for higher education.

John Miller Dickey served as the college’s first president. Some of his early students were encouraged to support the establishment of Liberia as an African American colony, notably Armistead Hutchinson Miller (1829/30-1865), James Ralston Amos (1826-1864), his brother Thomas Henry Amos (1825-1869), and Thomas Henry Amos (1826-1869). (This was a project of the American Colonization Society.) All of the guys were ordained as ministers.

In the 2020 magazine’s ranking of HBCUs, Lincoln University is placed number 19, according to U.S. News & World Report. Lincoln was placed 119th in the North Regional Universities category in the US News & World Best Colleges Report for 2020.

Through Lincoln University’s international and study abroad program, students from Ecuador, Argentina, Spain, Ireland, Costa Rica, Japan, France, Cambodia, Zambia, Liberia, Ghana, Kenya, Russia, Australia, Thailand, the Czech Republic, Mexico, and South Africa participated in service learning projects.

The Lincoln-Barnes Visual Arts program was established through a collaboration between Lincoln University and the Barnes Foundation. Recently, a Pan-Africana Studies major was added to the college’s list of undergraduate majors. It also created a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts degree.

Lincoln University offers 38 majors and 23 minors to its undergraduate students. Over 10% of the country’s African American attorneys and 20% of its African American physicians between 1854 and 1954 were graduates of Lincoln University.

The university changed its charter in 1953 to permit the granting of degrees to women as part of its 100th anniversary festivities. True coeducation, on the other hand, took some time to develop; in fact, in 1964, there were only 5% of female students. In 1972, Lincoln University received formal state recognition as a university connected with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
