“Since its inception, Lincoln University has turned out students of the highest caliber – leaders and pioneers who continue to play defining roles in the fields of business, science, athletics, the arts and government,” Dinniman said. “As the governor’s representative on the Board of Trustees I will work to ensure that we maintain this tradition of excellence, while bringing all the opportunities Lincoln has to offer to the next generation of students.”

In particular, Dinniman said he would continue to work on efforts to expand existing dual enrollment programs between Lincoln and regional high schools.

“Our region has so much to gain from the academic resources available at Lincoln University,” he said.

“We welcome Senator Dinniman and look forward to his participation as the Governor’s representative on the Lincoln University Board of Trustees,” said Board Chair Kimberly Lloyd.

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University is the nation’s first degree-granting historically black university. Lincoln has numerous notable alumni including poet Langston Hughes, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, musician Cab Calloway, Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first president of Nigeria and Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana.
