Building Blocks Of A University In Motion %^ ILVU PLAN It Started as a plan to fulfill the needs of two separate groups of North Carolina citi- zens. These two groups, the North Carolina framers and the recently fornned Watauga Club, were beginning to become dis- satisfied with the adequacy of the programs at the University in Chapel Hill and the services that these programs were providing to the people of North Carolina. The Watauga Club advocated an industrial school so the people of North Carolina would not be dependent on the schools of the North for a technical education. On March 11, 1885 this group saw the passing of their bill in the North Carolina Legislature that called for the formation of a school that would have instruction in ' woodwork, mining, metalurgy, practical agriculture and any other bran- ches of industrial education deemed necessary. ' This bill designated that the location would be in the city that offered the highest bid. Raleigh even- tually bid $8,000 and $3,000 in land near the fair grounds, $1,000 more than the runner-up in the bidding, Kinston. As construction of this ' Indus- trial College ' was being planned, Colonel Leonidas L. Polk began a series of meetings with farmers of the state. These meetings culminated when the Watauga Club ' s Industrial College was transformed into a Land-grant College by a vote of the Legislature on March 3, 1887. This bill formed the North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. A University planned from the very beginning to serve the needs of the people of North Carolina. Opening
