This report presents information regarding the staff, students, degrees conferred, income, expenditures, endowment, and physical plant facilities of the land-grant colleges and universities, for the academic year 1950-51. The facts are presented both for the individual institutions, and for the Nation as a whole. The present report, required by law, continues the series of annual reports which had their beginning with the establishment of the land-grant colleges in 1862. Through this series of annual reports, the reader is provided with factual information on the growth and progress of the land-grant institutions of the Nation. The land-grant institutions occupy a significant place in American higher education, both from the point of view of cultural influence and of number of students served. In the academic year 1950-51, the land-grant colleges and universities enrolled 18 percent of all students attending institutions of higher education, and 25 percent of the students in publicly controlled institutions. The land-grant institutions conferred nearly 25 percent of all earned degrees. (Contains 21 tables and 3 footnotes.) [This bulletin was prepared in consultation with Frederick J. Kelly.
