Lincoln University’s public safety team moves to renovated space in the International Cultural Center01/31/2021 11:59PM ● By Steven Hoffman
Lincoln University’s public safety team has moved to a new, renovated 5,200 square feet space on campus.
The Department of Public Safety’s 20 uniformed officers and eight security officers moved to the first-floor suite in the International Cultural Center on Dec. 10, 2020. The suite provides the department with individual work areas for shift supervisors and a larger duty room for meetings and training.
Prior to the temporary space that the department had been in for 5 years, Public Safety was housed in Azikiwe-Nkrumah Hall, which is under renovation and will house the Division of Institutional Advancement when complete later this year.
The move aligns with the vision in the 2020 Campus Master Plan and is part of the University’s commitment to investing in infrastructure to provide a world-class education and learning environment.
Lincoln University’s department of Public Safety led by Chief Marc R. Partee is customer-focused, student-centered organization tasked with the primary responsibility for safety on the main campus. The University’s Philadelphia location is patrolled by trained security officers who are employed by an outside agency who work in collaboration with building officials, Lincoln University's Department of Public Safety, and the Philadelphia Police Department.
The International Cultural Center, commonly called the ICC, opened in fall 2009 and is home to the president’s office, human resources, special events, the switchboard operator and Board of Trustees offices. The $26.1 million 60,000-square-foot facility includes a state-of-the-art 1,040-seat auditorium for the performing arts.
