An Iowa Legacy
The first Iowa settlers called for a new kind of college - one based on science and open to all; one dedicated to the education of the working people of Iowa. That was in 1846. Iowa had started building an ag college when the Morrill Act of 1862 passed. The timing was perfect, and Iowa was the first state to accept the provisions of the act.
