CONDITIONS FOR LEADERSHIP IN THE TOTAL PROGRAM OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS IN A STATE.
HOULE, CYRIL O.
A NARRATIVE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT OF WEST DAKOTA A AND M UNIVERSITY PROVIDES A DISCUSSION OF THE ROLE OF UNIVERSITY EXTENSION IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS EDUCATION. IN THIS LAND-GRANT COLLEGE, THE EXTENSION SERVICE WAS ONLY THE LARGEST OF NUMEROUS ADULT PROGRAMS ON AND OFF CAMPUS. OTHER INSTITUTIONS, USING THE COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE AS A MODEL, WERE DEVELOPING URBAN EXTENSION PROGRAMS, FUNDED BY TITLE I OF THE HIGHER EDUCATION ACT. THE PRESIDENT FELT THAT OFF-CAMPUS PROGRAMS SHOULD BE COORDINATED UNDER A VICE-PRESIDENT, A STATE AGENCY SHOULD BE CREATED TO COORDINATE PROGRAMS OF UNIVERSITIES AND OTHER AGENCIES, AND A COMMISSION CREATED TO ALLOCATE FEDERAL FUNDS. TARGET AUDIENCES COULD BE DEFINED AS SPECIALISTS (TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS), THE ACTIVELY-CONCERNED (PTA MEMBERS), THE ATTENTIVE (LISTENERS), AND THE INATTENTIVE (APATHETIC). OBJECTIVES SUGGESTED BY THIS FRAMEWORK WERE THAT SPECIALISTS COULD EDUCATE EACH OTHER, INTERESTED CITIZENS COULD BE PROVIDED WITH SUBJECT KNOWLEDGE AND TECHNIQUES, LEADERSHIP TRAINING COULD BE PROVIDED FOR THE ATTENTIVE, AND MOTIVATION FOR THE INATTENTIVE. THE COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE HAD MUCH TO OFFER, IN URBAN EXTENSION, IN SUBJECT SPECIALISTS AND SOCIAL EXPERTISE IN LEADERSHIP TRAINING, GROUP DYNAMICS, USE OF MASS MEDIA, AND IN LOCATING AND INFLUENCING LEADERS OF THE POWER STRUCTURE.
