Jefferson City, MO The Class of 2019 will enjoy returning to a bit of history.  Commencement will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2019, at 10 a.m. in Dwight T. Reed Stadium. The university began holding Commencement in The LINC after its opening in May 2017, but students wished to return to old traditions. 

“Our students who will transition to alumni on that day have been communicating with me since early on in this academic year their desire to return to this bit of history,” says Lincoln University President Dr. Jerald Jones Woolfolk.  “I am in agreement with them and it is my pleasure to announce Commencement will be held at the stadium.” 

In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to Robert and Charlene Mitchell Auditorium in Richardson Fine Arts Center.  Livestreaming will be available from anywhere
