Lincoln University, the nation's first degree-granting Historically Black College and University has attracted an interracial and international enrollment from the surrounding community, region and around the world.
During our first 100 years, Lincoln graduated approximately 20 percent of the African American physicians and more than 10 percent of the African American attorneys in the nation. Our alumni have led more than 35 colleges and universities and scores of prominent churches. They also include U.S. ambassadors; mission chiefs; federal, state, and municipal judges; mayors; and city managers. Today, Lincoln graduates continue to make names for themselves in the sciences, business, religion, law enforcement, and even, creative and entertainment fields as writers, directors, comedians, and film executives.
Among Lincoln's most notable alumni include: Melvin B. Tolson, an educator and one of the most significant African American modernist poets; Langston Hughes, world-acclaimed poet; Thurgood Marshall, the first African American U.S. Supreme Court Justice; Hildrus A. Poindexter, the first African American to earn both an M.D. (1929, Harvard University) and a Ph.D. (1932, Columbia University) as well as also the first African American internationally-recognized authority on tropical diseases; Gil-Scott-Heron, a legendary American soul and jazz poet, musician and author, attended Lincoln in the late 1960s.
