UIS has scheduled its grand opening for the Center for Lincoln Studies for February 12, 2021 – the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. The Center is one of five stated priorities of the Reaching Stellar capital campaign that seeks to raise $40 million for UIS by 2022. Now that the dream of the Center is becoming a reality, it is expected to be a national base for scholarship, teaching and public history about Lincoln’s life, leadership and legacy. “I want people to come in and get the feeling that amazing things are going to be happening here,” said Anne Moseley, Acting Director of the Center for Lincoln Studies.
