Description
The University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign (U of I, University of Illinois, UIUC, or simply Illinois) is a public research-intensive university in the U.S. state of Illinois. A land-grant university, it is the flagship campus of the University of Illinois system. The University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign (founded, 1867) is the second oldest public university in the state (after Illinois State University), and is a founding member of the Big Ten Conference. It is a member of the Association of American Universities and is designated as a RU/VH Research University (very high research activities).[7] The campus library system possesses the second-largest university library in the United States after Harvard University.[8]
History
The Morrill Act of 1862 granted each state in the United States a portion of land on which to establish a major public state university, one which could teach agriculture, mechanic arts, and military training, without excluding other scientific and classical studies.[12] This phrase would engender controversy over the Universitys initial academic philosophies, polarizing the relationship between the people of Illinois and the Universitys first president, John Milton Gregory.[13]
