Founded as a land-grant college, West Virginia University is a public, four-year, research institution of higher education,located in the city of Morgantown, West Virginia. Almost as soon as West Virginia gained statehood in 1863, residents planned for a land-grant school. The Agricultural College of West Virginia was founded in 1867, and by 1868, the name was changed to West Virginia University. In 1889, the first ten women enrolled, in addition to two Japanese students. Though early programs focused on the sciences, humanities and social work studies were added by the 1930s. Throughout the school’s history, the student body has continued to diversify.
