Statewide Public Services

The three Statewide Public Services are the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station, OSU Extension Service and Forest Research Laboratory. They have separate line item funding in the state budget.  The state land grant universities were created through the Morrill Land-Grants Acts of 1862 and 1890, as well as the Hatch Experiment Station bill of 1887, to provide broad public education and to conduct agricultural research.
