History Lincoln University is a four-year, state-supported, coed university that was founded in 1866 as Lincoln Institute. Lincolnís illustrious history began at the close of the Civil War, when soldiers and officers of the Sixty-second United States Colored Infantry contributed $5000 to create Lincoln Institute to educate the freed blacks of Missouri. Additional funds were supplied by the Sixty-fifth Colored Infantry, which contributed $1324.50. Classes began in September 1866. Three years later the institute moved to its current location. The following year, Lincoln received state aid for teacher training. In 1877, college-level work was added to the curriculum, and two years later Lincoln became a state institution. The first bachelorís degrees were awarded in 1891. In 1921, the school became Lincoln University. Since September 1954, Lincoln has accepted any qualified student who wishes to enroll. Today, Lincoln University prides itself in providing students with a culturally, educationally, and socially diverse learning environment. Lincoln Universityís campus is located on approximately 152 acres in the small town of Jefferson City, Missouri. An additional 800 acres is used for a research farm. The twenty-building campus ../includes both historic and modern facilities. Under the second Morrill Act of 1890, Lincoln University of Missouri became a land-grant institution.
