CSU may get land-grant status

Jun 15, 2012

State lawmakers have approved a plan to convey land-grant status on Central State University. The change was first proposed 120 years ago but scuttled by former President Rutherford B. Hayes. It's now up to Congress to make the historically black school in Wilberforce the second land-grant college in state history. Such status avails Central State of millions in federal funding.
