MSU was founded in 1893 as the Agricultural College of the State of Montana. Today,
the College of Agriculture is an integral part of fulfilling MSU’s land grant mission
serving the sons and daughters of our state. The Montana Agricultural Experiment Station
(MAES) creates opportunities for students and faculty to excel through hands-on learning;
to serve through campus and community engagement; to explore unique solutions to distinct
and interesting questions; and to connect Montanans with the global community.
