Lincoln University Cooperative Extension Men on Business--A College Assurance Program
Matthews, Yvonne; Bradley, Ernest
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v15 n3 p113-118 Sep 2011
Lincoln University was founded in 1866 by the men of the 62nd and 65th United States Colored Infantries and their white officers for the special benefit of freed African Americans. Today, Lincoln University's role in the education of Missourians and others, and its service throughout the state, the nation, and across the globe, are well-recognized. The university is a Historically Black, 1890 land-grant, public, comprehensive institution that provides educational opportunities, including theoretical and applied learning experiences, to a diverse population within a nurturing, student-centered environment. In this article, the authors tell the story of Lincoln University's Men on Business--A College Assurance Program, which was awarded a 2010 Outreach Scholarship/W. K. Kellogg Foundation Engagement Award for the Historically Black Colleges and Universities category. They provide context about Lincoln University, the nature of the community, and the program.
