This paper examines the role of an agriculture department in a private liberal arts college in the context of the world hunger issue. While the small college cannot make the major contributions to agricultural research necessary for a renewed "green revolution," it can continue to serve an important role in training the human resources needed for international agricultural development. Agriculture staff located in a small private college can, via interdisciplinary teaching experience, communicate the true facts of agricultural production and distribution to a growing urban population.
