Land-Grab Universities

Add to calendar

In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act, which turned nearly 11 million acres of land expropriated from tribal nations into seed money for land-grant universities. Join NC State for two days of events exploring “Land-grab universities," an award-winning investigative story written by our keynote speakers, Tristan Ahtone and Robert Lee. You'll learn about the history of land-grant universities and the data journalism tools that made Ahtone and Lee's groundbreaking project possible. For more information about this event,  visit the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center website.
