Dinniman, Lawrence Co-Host Brunch for Lincoln University President
LINCOLN UNIVERSITY (May 1, 2018) – State Senator Andy Dinniman and state Rep. John Lawrence co-hosted a welcome brunch for Lincoln University’s President Brenda A. Allen.
“I want to thank Rep. Lawrence and the Lincoln University community for coming together to welcome and meet with President Allen,” Dinniman said. “Lincoln University continues to live up to its rich tradition of excellence in preparing young people for the future. And members of the surrounding communities are committed to continuing to support those efforts by forming bonds, building bridges, and strengthening our relationships on campus.”
“President Allen brings new leadership and a new vision to Lincoln University,” said Lawrence. “I appreciate the opportunity to partner with her and Senator Dinniman to showcase all that the University has to offer to the community.”
The brunch included business, civic, community and local government leaders from southern Chester County for an opportunity to meet Allen at Lincoln University’s President’s Residence, learn about the university’s various programs and new initiatives, and tour its historic campus.
Allen, a Lincoln alumnus, was named Lincoln’s 14th president in July and officially installed in October. She came to Lincoln from Winston-Salem State University where she served as provost and vice president of academic affairs. Prior to that, she served as associate provost and director of institutional diversity at Brown University.
Allen holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Lincoln University, a master’s degree in experimental psychology and a doctorate in developmental psychology, both from Howard University in Washington, DC.
