The Rhode Island Agricultural Experiment Station was established in 1888 at the same time as the State Agricultural School. In 1892, the Rhode Island College of Agricultural and Mechanic Arts was founded. In 1951, the name of the institution was changed to the University of Rhode Island. Through the past century, the Agricultural Experiment Station has conducted research dedicated to addressing challenges in agriculture, food production and processing, nutrition, natural resource policy and natural resource management. More recently, the reach of the Experiment Station has extended its reach to include renewable energy and climate change.
