Utah State University - the model land-grant

The model of the modern land-grant university, Utah State University. Stan Albrecht, President, Utah State University:

In the tradition of land grant universities, Utah State University OpenCourseWare assures that no individual who is prepared and who desires the opportunity to advance his or her education is turned away. USU OCW provides an unprecedented degree of free and open access to the knowledge and expertise of our faculty for the benefit of every citizen of the state of Utah and every person in the world. As we enter the 21st century, services like OpenCourseWare will enable land grant institutions to more fully accomplish their missions."

Now we just need 104 other land-grant universities to follow suit.
