Alabama

  • Alabama A&M University Extension*
  • Auburn University- Extension
  • Tuskegee University Extension** (Though Alabama A&M is Alabama’s official 1890 Morrill Act institution, Tuskegee’s mission is so similar to those of the 1890 institutions that it is almost universally regarded as one of them. Tuskegee is a land-grant member of NASULGC, as are Alabama A&M and Auburn; however, only Alabama A&M and Auburn formally participate in the now-combined Alabama Cooperative Extension System(ACES), with Tuskegee listed as a “cooperating partner” in ACES.  Tuskegee is also explicitly granted the same status as the 1890 institutions in a number of U.S. laws.)

Notes
An asterisk (*) denotes a historically black college or university.

Double asterisks(**) denote Tuskegee University (formerly Tuskegee Institute), a largely privately funded university, which, because of its unique history, functions as a de facto land-grant university and has received Smith-Lever funds since 1972 to operate its own Cooperative Extension program.

Land grant institutions are often categorized as 1862, 1890, and 1994 institutions, based on the date of the legislation that designated them with land grant status. For a map and list of all 76 land grant institutions, see the State Partnerspage hosted by the Cooperative States Research Education and Extension Service of the United States Department of Agriculture.

Of the 106 Land-Grant institutions, all but two (the Community College of Micronesia, and Northern Marianas College) are members of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges(NASULGC). The 31 tribal colleges of 1994 are represented as a system by the single membership of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium(AIHEC).
