In 1895, the Minnesota legislature appropriated $30,000 to construct experimental research farms at Morris, Minnesota and Crookston, Minnesota. In 1906, the Northwest School of Agriculture (NWSA) officially opened. In 1963, the University of Minnesota Bureau of Field Studies began examining the need for a two year institution of higher education at the NWSA and, in 1965, the University of Minnesota Technical Institute, a two-year (associate) degree granting institution, was formed. In 1988, the name was changed to the University of Minnesota-Crookston (UMC). In 1993, the University of Minnesota-Crookston became a baccalaureate degree granting institution.
