Lincoln College Downsizes In Normal And Grows In Lincoln

Oct 2, 2015

Lincoln College in Normal is losing several certificate and bachelors programs as the institution reorganizes with more programs moving to the Lincoln campus. It's part of what President David Gerlach calls a $7.6 million reinvestment campaign for the 150 year old school.

Lincoln College will stop offering Esthetics, Cosmetology, teacher training, and massage therapy certifications in Normal. Degree programs in Criminal Justice, Business, and Sports Management will move from Normal to Lincoln. Four jobs will also move and the college has eliminated 13 jobs.

The school will also sell its Normal campus and lease back the main building for an accelerated program targeting adult students that Gerlach says Lincoln hopes to grow.
