Scheduling conflicts sideline Lincoln’s Presidential Forum

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA – While President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney had been invited to participate in the Presidential Forum to be held Oct. 9 at Lincoln University of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, one of our partners had unofficially and prematurely released the press announcement.

Since then, we have been informed that President Obama and Governor Romney are unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts.  No more information is available at this time.


Lincoln University of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, founded in 1854 as the nation’s first historically Black degree-granting institution, combines the elements of a liberal arts and science-based undergraduate curriculum along with select graduate programs to meet the needs of those living in a highly-technological and global society.  Today, the University enrolls a diverse student body of approximately 2,000 men and women.  Internationally recognized for preparing and producing world class leaders such as Thurgood Marshall, the first African American U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Lillian Fishburne, the first African American woman promoted to Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy, Langston Hughes, the noted poet, Kwame Nkrumah, the first President of Ghana and Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first President of Nigeria.
