AdvertisementEmmy Award-winning Journalist to Headline Lincoln University's 2022 Founders' Day Celebration
Emmy Award-winning journalist and Lincoln University alumna Carmen Fields will headline events at Lincoln's 2022 Founders' Day on Feb. 10.
Founders' Day celebrates Lincoln's 156 years of education. Founded in January 1866 by Civil War veterans of the 62nd and 65th United States Colored Infantries, Lincoln Institute opened in Jefferson City on Sept. 17, 1866 with two students. In 1887, Lincoln added college-level classes to the curriculum. Under the second Morrill Act of 1890, the school became a land-grant institution. A name change in 1921 to Lincoln University accompanied the school's expansion to a four-year institution; graduate studies were added in 1940. In 1954, the historically Black university opened its doors to all students and today serves a diverse student population of nearly 1,800 with an array of academic offerings.
The university is planning a full slate of events on the Lincoln campus in Jefferson City to mark Founders' Day 2022. Free and open to the public, Fields' Founders' Day address will take place on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 11 a.m. in Richardson Auditorium (710 E. Dunklin St., Jefferson City, Missouri) on Lincoln's campus.
