1890 Exhibit: Celebrating UF Partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Home

This year marks the 125th anniversary of the second Morrill Act which addressed racial inequality in land grant colleges of agriculture in southern states of the U.S. This guide showcases partnerships between the UF and two HBCUs: FAMU and UVI.

Celebrating UF Partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities

The second Morrill Act of 1890 addressed racial inequality by establishing 17 new land grant colleges to serve the higher education needs of the African American population in the south. These institutions are designated Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). At every land grant college, research is conducted at Agricultural Experiment Stations and practical results are shared with the public through the Cooperative Extension Service. This exhibit celebrates collaborations in agriculture between the University of Florida and two HBCUs’: Florida Agriculture and Mechanical University (FAMU) and the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI).
