It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to discuss a topic that complements the exciting theme. "Education in Agriculture: A New Dimension for a new Decade," so appropriately chosen for this meeting. Indeed, the topic of "Education in agriculture," itself, is exciting to me. This theme clearly suggests that we as agricultural educators realize that new things are happening both in agriculture and in education. These new things must be addressed in the classroom, in academic curricula, and in the student-advising process. I use the world "process" deliberately to reinforce the ideal continuous nature of student-teacher interactions. The benefits of this process are immeasureable when performed well, and equally serious when not performed well. We may know this on the basis of our own experiences or from reports by students.
