This year, Lincoln College of New England (LCNE) is celebrating a 50-year tradition of student-centered academics. Founded in 1966 as Briarwood College, LCNE offers a wide variety of professional programs and an active alumni network to help students succeed in their job search.

“At LCNE, our students discover and appreciate the benefits of a college community that feels like family,” said LCNE President Denise Lewicki in a school press release. “From the students to the professors to all of us on the LCNE staff, this campus is our home. Here, we all know each other by first name. Students know that their professors, classmates, and LCNE alumni will back them up if they struggle with an assignment or need assistance in finding a job.”

Lewicki hosts a monthly President’s lunch with LCNE students who have distinguished themselves in academic and professional endeavors, and the college provides students with highly personal academic support programs. Small class sizes also allow professors to tailor instruction to the needs of each individual student.

The college offers Bachelor’s Degrees, Associate Degrees, and Certificate programs designed to help students begin their careers immediately after graduation. Programs are offered through a mix of on-campus courses and online study, and include studies in fields like occupational therapy assisting, communications, criminal justice, business, and mortuary science.

In fact, LCNE offers the only accredited mortuary science programs in Connecticut.

In recent years, LCNE has added new programs, including an RN-to-BSN option for Registered Nurses looking to expand their job prospects, and a dental hygiene bachelor’s degree. Both of these fields are projected to see double-digit job growth across Connecticut and around the country over the next seven years.

Lewicki said that the campus has planned several events to bring together the school and the Southington

community this year in celebration of its anniversary, and that the student body is excited to see what’s ahead.
