For over three decades many professional agriculturalists from the United States have served as international agricultural educators, particularly in the Third World. Many of them including Mr. Yencer (quoted above) had success stories to share. Others have not been as positive about their international assignments. Even though there are some disappointments and frustrations, there is still a growing number of agriculturalists in U.S. colleges who express deep interest in international assignments (bin Yahya and Moore, 1984; Meaders, 1982; Perez and Rogers, 1983; Thuemmel and Welton, 1983).
