International Programs

Learn. Liberate. Lead…The World!


The Office of International Programs (OIP) cultivates global learning and cultural appreciation at Lincoln University, empowering students at the nation’s first degree-granting Historically Black College and University (HBCU) to effect positive change in their communities and the world. It does so by:

  • Facilitating educational international experiences that enable students to discover their connection with the world;
  • Providing services to enhance the lives of international students on campus;
  • Leading initiatives to make the university more culturally inclusive and engaged with the global community.


The Office of International Programs will advance Lincoln University’s legacy of providing the educational foundation that launches the careers of global leaders.
