Justin Morrill is the Father of Land Grant Institutions and the driving force behind the Morrill Acts of 1862 and 1890. More than 150 years ago, Morrill had a vision that the nation would be more prosperous if it provided opportunities for education to underrepresented citizens. Because of his vision, today many states have 1890 Land-Grant Universities.

describe the ways in which Morrill’s vision contributed to growth in higher education and its place in the history of family studies. Be sure to address the following:

· Do you believe his vision is still relevant today and why?

· Conduct additional research on the first land grant in a state other than New York. Locate and analyze the university’s mission and vision statements.

· Do the statements contain language consistent with the original premise of land grants? Give examples.

· Does the institution offer programs or conduct research that serves children and/or families in their community? Describe these programs/projects.
