Lincoln University of Missouri Signs Partnership With a Korean University

Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri, has entered into a partnership with the Korea National University of Transportation. The agreement will create faculty and student exchanges between the two universities and increase research opportunities for scholars at each institution.

Said Sewell, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Lincoln University, stated that “as our world is becoming smaller due to advances in technology, we look forward to this agreement ending misperceptions and bridging cultural and educational differences. That is the essence of a university. I look forward to faculty and students from Korea taking and instructing courses on our campus and vice versa.”
