Utah State University Information
Utah State University, Logan, UT is a public space-grant and land-grant institution reputed for its lead in academic and technical disciplines specifically in water, land, space and in life enhancement.
It was categorized as one of the “Best Western” schools in 2009 by The Princeton Review and is ranked in the third tier among four of National Universities by USNews and World Report. Currently steered by its President, Stan L. Albrecht, the University sprawls through 7,000 acres of land, its campuses occupying 400 acres space, and with over 200 structures, of which 63 among them were intended for scholastic activities.
The Utah State University was founded in 1888, in effect of a bill authored by Anthon H. Lund. Raised in the partially-finished south annex of Old Main, it was known as the Agricultural College of Utah. In 1890, the university was opened, and with it was the operation of the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station, the college research facility. It began an intensive campaign on research, this being infused into the university’s schools and 42 academic sections.
In 1963, the Utah Water Research Laboratory was set up. This intensified the university’s efforts on research particularly on water resources. The laboratory’s undertakings during this period placed the State of Utah in local and worldwide recognition.
In the post World War II era, under President Truman’s Point IV Program, the university was chosen to assist in the development of Iran’s agricultural reserves. This achievement became the take-off point of the university’s extension programs which had its focus on international outreach.
The university’s efforts on extension continued to advance as the Utah Cooperative Extension Service was founded in 1814. County extension sites and Centers for Continuing Education were activated to propagate the extension philosophy of the university.
One major milestone of the Utah State University was its contribution to the country’s space program. Several of its graduate students had given notable assistance to the university’s research objectives by actively involving themselves in research at the Space Dynamics Laboratory, a research installation affiliated with Center for Atmospheric and Space Sciences. These two research establishments had been working in alliance with the National Space and Aeronautics Administration since the early 1960s.
In 1916, the university granted its first advanced degree and in 1960, it conferred its first doctoral degrees.
Today, with the university’s motto, “Research, Service, Training,” it expands into 7 colleges, listed as, College of Agriculture, College of Engineering, College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, College of Natural Resources, College of Science, Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services, and Jon M. Huntsman School of Business.
