  • Very Nice Photo – capitalize “The” ?
  • For KELLY—insert here photos from your collection of UM OIP events, etc (from Joe—Nice selection—can we airbrush the leftmost? The lighting makes him look “sweaty”)
  • Kintja—Saul asked that you edit the pdf map title to read “The University of Maryland in the World” (keep same typeface and format)
  • From the Colleges perspective it is important to understand the UM Strategic Plan and how AGNR responds to it. Even though I do not identify how we are adopting and adhering to the strategic plan it is a part of all we are doing. Also please realize that in 2005 when the UM had its last major budget reduction the college had a committee to make recommendations as to deal with the reductions and yet become more efficient. If you were to go back and review that committees recommendations you would see that many if not most of their suggestions have been implemented.
  • Do you want all of this detail?
  • All academic programs on campus are accredited by the Middle State accrediting board. I addition there are professional programs accredited in Plant Sci & Landscape Arch., Food and Nutrition Sci. and Vet. Med. As a result the academic programs in the College are as listed in this slide.
  • Do you want all of this detail?
  • Because of the federal and state legislation AGNR has offices in all 22 MD counties plus Baltimore City. Each of these offices has tenure track college faculty located in them and these faculty members are full members of the UM faculty including being members of the faculty senate. In addition the College has 4 research and education centers in strategic locations around the state were we have both research and educational facilities and capabilities and faculty.
  • Since much of agriculture production is climate, soils and geography specific and the State of Maryland has three very different geographical zones; the coastal plains, the piedmont and the mountains, it is necessary to have research sites located strategically in the various areas of the state. As a result we have research facilities and land at 8 off campus location. Plant agriculture is particularly sensitive to variations I location and as a result varieties, pest control, agronomic practices etc. have to be evaluated and adapted for different conditions.
  • The faculty are tenure track only, the figures do not include contractual employees, The faculty numbers are Full Time Equivalents not the number of people who may have teaching, research or extension partial appointments. This does not indicate the number of split appointments there are in AGNR.

  • The Land-Grant Colleges and Universities University of Maryland College Park 3-2009
  • The U.S.A. in the mid-1800s
    • 85% of the population lived on farms or in small towns
    • The universities at that time were mainly private universities that taught law, medicine, philosophy and literature. These universities were not readily accessible to the common man (the public)
  • Land-Grant System
    • The land-grant system is a term used to describe the set of U. S. A. state and territorial pubic institutions of higher learning which receive federal support for integrated programs of teaching, research and extension in agriculture, food and environmental systems
    • The establishment of this system of colleges and universities was open to all high school graduates and would allow the common man (the public) to more easily attend a college or university and attain a higher education
  • The Land Grant University Morrill Act, 1862 Academics Smith-Lever Act, 1914 Extension Hatch Act, 1887 Research
  • Morrill Land-Grant College Act – 1862
    • Provided grants of federal lands to states and territories to establish institutions of higher learning. Each college was to use the money from the land granted to it as a trust fund to endow a college where practical education in agriculture, mechanical arts and military service would be emphasized
  • Hatch Act – 1887
    • Established the concept of a nationwide system of agricultural experiment stations
    • Research was needed to solve agriculture problems, to provide information to farmers and to create new agriculture science to teach at these agriculture colleges
    • Agricultural experiment stations were placed in the land-grant universities
  • Morrill Act - 1890
      • Provided federal support for the establishment of institutions, primarily for agricultural education of African Americans, in the then segregated Southern states
  • Smith-Lever Act – 1914
    • Authorized federal support for extension services at the state and territorial level and established the Cooperative Extension Service at each land-grant university
  • Equity in Educational Land-Grant Status Act - 1994
    • Authorized land-grant status to 29 tribal colleges
