This year, universities across the country will mark the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Act of 1862, legislation that laid the groundwork for the public research university's ongoing mission of learning, discovery, and engagement for the common good.
One of the country's original land-grant institutions, the University of Minnesota is proud of its history as a land-grant research university and remains dedicated to its mission of promoting access to higher education and collaborating to advance knowledge benefiting communities, the state, and world.
