Lincoln University president reflects on first year in position, plans for new semester

Jerald Jones Woolfolk said her time as president of Lincoln University has been a whirlwind.

Officially installed last October, but on the job since June 1, 2018, Woolfolk has been serving as the university's 20th president for just over a year.

"It was a whirlwind, I can tell you that. I learned a lot of things about the university, about the students and staff," Woolfolk said. "It was a learning period for me, and it was also an assessment period for me, to understand how we do business and how we can do business better."

Woolfolk's first year at LU ended in another kind of whirlwind when the President's House at 601 Jackson St. was hit by the May 22 tornado. The historic home, built in 1916, is currently uninhabitable, and because it's on the National Historic Registry and requires specific restoration, it will be some time before she can move back in.
