THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF STATE UNIVERSITIES AND LAND-GRANT COLLEGES, HELPED BY A GRANT FROM THE W.K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION, ESTABLISHED THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION CENTER FOR ADVANCED STUDY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN IN 1955. THE PURPOSE WAS TO IMPROVE THE COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE BY AN INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAM OF GRADUATE STUDY, INSERVICE TRAINING IN ADMINISTRATION AND SUPERVISION, RESEARCH, AND INFORMATION DISSEMINATION. THE CENTER HAS GRANTED 85 PH.D. DEGREES AND 83 MASTER'S DEGREES, AND HAS BEEN PROMINENT IN THE ACADEMIC UPGRADING OF THE COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE FROM THE COUNTY WORKER TO THE HIGHEST ADMINISTRATIVE LEVELS. RESEARCH HAS RESULTED IN CHANGES IN STRUCTURAL ORGANIZATION OF STATE STAFFS, METHODS OF PERSONNEL SELECTION AND EVALUATION, SUPERVISION, AND STATEWIDE PROGRAM PLANNING. AN EXPANDED PROGRAM SHOULD INCLUDE STUDIES OF PROBLEMS RELATING TO THE MERGING OF EXTENSION SERVICES TO PREPARE INDIVIDUALS FOR ADMINISTRATIVE RESPONSIBILITIES IN MERGED PROGRAMS. APPENDIXES INCLUDE A ROSTER OF FELLOWS OF THE CENTER, A LISTING OF STAFF MEMBERS, A DESCRIPTION OF PUBLICATIONS, AND POLICIES CONCERNING CENTER FELLOWSHIPS AND SUPPORTING GRADUATE RESEARCH. (AJ)
