Central State University President Dr. Cynthia Jackson-Hammond:
A land-grant college or university is an institution designated by Congress to receive the benefits of the Morrill Acts of 1862 and 1890; Central State University falls under the latter. The Morrill Acts provided federal land sold by the state to fund agricultural studies at public colleges and universities.
