2018 Farm Bill - Non-Land-Grant Colleges of Agriculture (NLGCA) Eligibility Listening Session
Section 7102 of the 2018 Agriculture Improvement Act amended the definition of “NLGCA Institution” and “Non-Land-Grant College of Agriculture” to mean a public college or university offering a baccalaureate or higher degree in the study of agricultural sciences, forestry, or both, which is any of the 32 specified areas of study. Additionally, Section 7102 established a process of review within 90 days of enactment of each NLGCA to ensure compliance with the revised definition and to propose revocation of the designated NLGCA for noncompliance.
This listening session provides the opportunity for public comment on the process for determining if an institution is or is not eligible to be certified as a Non-Land-Grant College of Agriculture.
