Letter from the President

Welcome to Lincoln College. Since 1865, when Lincoln University was founded, we have been guided by a clear vision: to uniquely empower students to realize their full potential. I am proud and humbled to continue in that tradition as the 22nd President of Lincoln College.


Lincoln College continues to provide our students with an exceptional experience that educates, challenges, and prepares them to lead successful lives. Lincoln College offers a traditional and accelerated format to fit the ever-changing student in their pursuit of a two-year, four-year, or post-graduate degree.


We are committed to offering affordable tuition, and an unwavering dedication to the education of our students at all Lincoln College campuses. As one of the most affordable private institutions in Illinois, Lincoln College is a unique educational opportunity for students. 


As I reflect on the growth of Lincoln College, I am grateful to our extraordinary employees, students, the local community, and the continued devotion of our alumni and donors. Lincoln College continues to see growing enrollment trends and record-breaking support and generosity from our constituents. I look forward to the coming years and the College’s bright future. 


Lincoln College has always been more than just an institution; it is a family. For more than 150 years, we have welcomed new students into our campus community. We look forward to welcoming you into the Lincoln College Lynx family!


Dr. David Gerlach

President of Lincoln College
