The State College for Colored Students, now known as Delaware State University, was established May 15, 1891 by the Delaware General Assembly under the provisions of the Morrill Act of 1890 by which land-grant colleges for Blacks came into existence in states maintaining separate educational facilities.

Delaware State University is a public, comprehensive, 1890 land-grand institution. The mission of the University is to provide for the people of Delaware, and others who are admitted, meaningful and relevant education that emphasizes both the liberal and professional aspects of higher education. Within this context, the University provides educational opportunities to all qualified citizens of this State and other states at a cost consistent with the economic status of the students as a whole.
