The Lincoln University Student Association (LUSA) provides a forum for the free Lincoln University Student Association exchange of ideas that is essential to the vitality of the academic environment to which students are exposed. This continued freedom of expression is not only vital to any democratic society, but also serves as a directive force in many university programs. The Lincoln University Student Association is composed of representatives of the various ethnic organizations on campus, as well as at-large members and officers elected by the student body every Fall Semester. The Lincoln University Student Association represents the students in matters of self-government and problems of mutual interest to the student body and the University. Its purpose is to initiate student activities and to help promote the student's welfare on the campus. The Student Association consists of a group of officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) and a representative body (The Student Senate) who are elected every Fall Semester.
The Association, in cooperation with other organizations on campus, strives to develop and present varied activities that will meet the social, cultural and academic needs of the student. Whether held on or off campus or involving a large or small segment of the student body, they reflect the personal orientation of the University.
Message from the LUSA President:
It is with the greatest pleasure that I welcome you to Lincoln University. As Lincoln himself said
“I view education as the most important subject which we as people can be engaged in”
so do we know that it is this very understanding of the critical importance of a university education to your prosperity, as well as that of your families and community that has urged all of you, new and returning students, like the thousands of our alumni who have gone before, to seek to culminate your years of primary, secondary studies and tertiary-level education at Lincoln University.
At Lincoln, we are proud to provide a world-class learning environment which consists not only of excellent physical surroundings but of academic staff, many of whom are engaged in internationally competitive research, all of whom are highly skilled and credentialed in their subjects areas and supported by a cadre of administrative, technical and support staff who are committed to the efficient and effective management of the Campus.
We are extremely pleased to be able to complement our students’ academic and professional programs with exposure to a wide range of opportunities and initiatives that are geared not only to prepare them for their future careers, but also to aid in the development of well rounded, independent and critical thinkers who can make a significant contribution to the democracies in which they live.
Once again, welcome to the Lincoln University family and I encourage you to take pride in knowing that you are now a part of a rich legacy. It is an exciting time to be here with us at this golden juncture in our history, as we reflect on our past and forge steadfastly ahead armed with a renewed commitment to producing globally competitive citizens.
