Since its founding in 1919, around the same time as many of America's top schools, the university has chosen to deliver the best, custom-fit education to the select few, rather than provide the widest range of subjects and cater to the widest possible audience. Lincoln begins with a highly competent faculty and the most useful educational programs, and mentors each student all the way to graduation. Our students' success proves that we make the right choices.

Lincoln has become a truly global university due to its diverse multicultural student body and faculty. Located in a powerful international hub - the San Francisco Bay Area - it provides a multitude of invaluable learning opportunities. Because a successful career in the 21st century requires deep understanding of international relations and the impact of globalization, Lincoln is well-positioned to give its students a competitive advantage in business and professional fields worldwide. Our excellent and rigorous curriculum, outstanding faculty and convenient facilities provide all the necessary components to ensure our students' path to a successful future.
