One hundred and fifty years ago, President Abraham Lincoln signed into law the Morrill Act, which created the land‐grant university system, made higher education more accessible to more people, and promoted agricultural science and the mechanical arts. Later, the Hatch and Smith‐Lever Acts further defined the core mission of these institutions: education, research, and outreach. Today, the land‐grant system includes 107 institutions in all 50 states and several U.S. territories. To see more information about the Morrill Act and find out more about the 150th Anniversary of the signing, please click here.
