The Division brings together units which have historically defined WVU's land-grant partnership with the federal government, including USDA-NIFA and other agencies.

This Division celebrates WVU’s history as marked by four federal acts: The Morrill, Hatch, Smith-Lever, and McIntire-Stennis Cooperative Forestry Research acts.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to carrying out the land-grant mission to provide knowledge and research to improve the lives and livelihoods of our students, alumni, community partners, and the state of West Virginia.
