I'm pleased to have the opportunity this afternoon to address your general session. As many of you know, some of your colleagues and I have been involved in a nation-wide effort since the summer of 1982 which attempts to understand what agricultural faculties believe to be unmet needs in undergraduate education, to determine what can be done to meet these needs, and begin to address them. My remarks are based on two projects: (1) The National Assessment of Agricultural and Natural Resources Curricula Project, supported by the Office of Higher Education Programs of the United States Department of Agriculture/Agricultural Research Service and (2) The National Agriculture and Natural Resources Curriculum Development Project, supported by the USDA, industry and the college community, and on my experience on faculties and in the administration of agricultural colleges.
