Comments about Land-Grant Colleges[edit]

Louisiana Tech University is not a land-grant instituion.

M.I.T. was given land by the state, not by an Act of Congress. Hence, it is not an "official" land grant institution. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 139.78.254.241 (talk) 16:08, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Neither MIT nor NJIT are listed in the USDA land grant universities. USDA partners_list.pdf Tmoy61 (talk) 05:31, 29 November 2012 (UTC)tmoy61

The state having given land to MIT doesn't negate its status as a land-grant institution. It is not a federal grant of actual land, but the mission of the college which determined its status under the 1862 act. article on MIT has more about this, and the article on land-grant universities also explains the definition more thoroughly. 174.52.210.196 (talk) 04:25, 10 September 2012 (UTC)
Calling Cornell University "largely" a public school under SUNY "but also" with a private university attached is misleading at best, and generally inaccurate. Cornell is a private institution with some (less than half) of its component colleges partially subsidized by the State of New York. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.252.120.104 (talk) 21:37, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
The comment about Cornell University, above, is rather silly. The vast majority of students at Cornell are attending the public part that is funded by the State of New York and only a small minority are attending the private Ivy League college there. All of that about "component colleges" is merely a paper distinction and of no real concern. The real concern is, "Where does the money come from to support the vast majority of the students?" Also, whatever a student at a public college pays in tuition and fees, that is only a small minority of the actual cost of his or her education there, e.g. professor's and staff member's salaries, buildings and grounds and their upkeep, utility bills, computer costs, and all of that.

Facts can decide this Cornell issue. The "public" Colleges at Cornell are known as "Statutory" Colleges. They are: The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), The College of Human Ecology, (Hum Ec), The College of Veterinary Medicine (Vet) and the NY State School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR). According to the Cornell University Factbook [1] as of Fall 2016, the enrollment is as follows: CALS-3,569, Hum Ec - 1,215, ILR- 999 and the Vet School accounts for a total of 535 Graduate and Professional students. The total undergraduate enrollment as of fall 2016 was 14,566. Total "public" or "statutory" College enrollment at Cornell as of Fall 2016 is 5,783 which is 39.7% of the total undergraduate enrollment.

Land Grant Status for Private Schools[edit]

Cornell University was a private university or college when the Land Grant system went into effect with the Morrill Act and the college received the land. Hence, there is a lack of historical perspective on "arguing about" whether it was a private land-grant college or not. The German word for such arguments is "haarspalterei" = "hair-splitting". Don't do that.

Numerous Problems and Errors related to this List[edit]

Gross lack of citations and source references. Many institutions listed are NOT land-grant universities per APLU, etc. Please note APLU membership does NOT denote land-grant status. The USDA publishes a map that shows ALL officially designated land-grant institutions per all three federal acts (1862, 1890 and 1994): http://www.csrees.usda.gov/qlinks/partners/map_lgu_all_front_12_9_09.pdf All individual Wiki pages for each school incorrectly listed here will need to be checked, and any incorrect mention of land-grant status on each institution's own Wiki page will need to be corrected. --Londonfifo (talk) 05:21, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Corrected California section. Also corrected corresponding Wiki pages for each CA institution removed from the list. --Londonfifo (talk) 05:21, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
