THE ROLE OF UNIVERSITIES IN DEVELOPMENTAL PROGRAMS, THE LAND GRANT IDEA--ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SELECTED READINGS.
DUNCAN, JAMES A.; AND OTHERS
LEADERSHIP IN AGRICULTURAL AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT OF NEW NATIONS CAN BE PROVIDED BY UNIVERSITIES, FOLLOWING THE EXAMPLE OF THE LAND GRANT COLLEGES OF THE UNITED STATES. THREE ROLES ARE SUGGESTED FOR UNIVERSITIES IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES--(1) THE EDUCATION OF AGRICULTURISTS, VETERINARIANS, AND TECHNICIANS WHO CAN APPLY THEIR KNOWLEDGE TO FARM PROBLEMS AND DEAL WITH THE BROADER PROBLEMS OF PLANNING AND PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION, (2) THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH PROGRAMS BUILT AROUND THE TESTING OF SCIENTIFIC THEORIES, THE APPLICATION OF RESEARCH TO THE SOLUTION OF PRACTICAL PROBLEMS, AND VERIFICATION OF RESEARCH FINDINGS UNDER PRACTICAL FARM CONDITIONS, AND (3) DISSEMINATION OF AGRICULTURAL INFORMATION AND RESULTS OF RESEARCH TO THE FARMER, EITHER THROUGH AGENCIES ALREADY WORKING WITH FARMERS OR BY RADIO, MAIL, NEWSPAPER, FARMERS' MEETINGS, AND TRAINING COURSES FOR TECHNICIANS AND FARMERS. THIS ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY, WITH MOST REFERENCES PUBLISHED IN THE 1960'S, ENCOMPASSES BROAD PHILOSOPHIC VIEWPOINTS ON THE IDEAL ROLE OF A UNIVERSITY, AS WELL AS SPECIFIC DETAILS OF THE FUNCTIONING OF EXISTING UNIVERSITY SYSTEMS IN BOTH ADVANCED AND UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES. SEVERAL REFERENCES DEAL WITH THE EXPERIENCES OF LAND-GRANT TYPE UNIVERSITIES IN BOTH SETS OF COUNTRIES. A SUPPLEMENTARY LIST OF UNANNOTATED REFERENCES DRAWN FROM OTHER BIBLIOGRAPHIES IS ATTACHED.
