ALU’s mission is to provide accessible, career-focused and lifelong learning opportunities to students at the undergraduate and graduate level. ALU aims to be a leader in online education for a global learning community.

ALU believes in providing students with the opportunity to achieve their educational and career-related goals to contribute to an ever-changing global community.

At Abraham Lincoln University, we believe in:

  • Conducting academic and business operations in an open, collaborative and ethical manner.
  • Facilitating accessibility and affordability for a diverse and non-traditional student body.
  • Incorporating quality into educational activities and support services that meet or exceed standards set by accrediting and regulatory bodies.
  • Embedding a practitioner’s perspective into the curriculum with a focus on skills, knowledge and abilities needed for entry or progression in occupations or fields of study.
  • Offering a dynamic, technology-based distance education environment that expands access to postsecondary education and engages students in a rich, multimedia learning experience.
  • Developing competence in communication, critical thinking, collaboration and information utilization to enhance opportunities for sustained career success.
  • Providing clear learning outcomes, timely feedback and assessment to promote student course content mastery.
  • Engaging in a constant process of continuous improvement through policy and course and program outcomes assessment to promote student mastery of program and course objectives, retention and graduation.

Abraham Lincoln University is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. The Accrediting Commission is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency and is a recognized member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
