Welcome to the Land-Grant Partners Project

Land-Grant Partners logo

The inaugural efforts of the Land-Grant Partners Project focus attention specifically on 1994-1862 collaborations. There are many paths toward a more comprehensive set of 1994-1862 partnerships that would be mutually beneficial to these land-grant institutions, all in service to an increased amount of support to Native American communities.

Plans are underway to include partnerships involving the 1890 land-grant institutions in the not-too-distant future, with a focus on directing greater resources toward African American communities. Our long-term goal is to eliminate the structural isolationism that currently exists among the 1862, 1890, and 1994 land-grant institutions.
