In accepting the award at the South African embassy in Washington, Lincoln University president Robert R. Jennings stated, “We are proud of the fact that we’ve played a small part in producing some of the individuals who have the conscience, the foresight, and the stick-to-it-ive-ness to do what is right. We’ve chosen to do so because we believe that the struggle continues and we must play a viable part in helping to be part of the solution to help in that struggle.”

President Jennings also confirmed that Lincoln University will open a branch campus in Cape Town, South Africa.
