TOWARD GREATNESS.
MCNEIL, DONALD R.
UNIVERSITY EXTENSION IN THE UNITED STATES IS MOVING TOWARD GREATNESS BECAUSE OF AN ACADEMIC REVOLUTION THAT EMBRACES CHANGING TECHNOLOGY, ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT LIFELONG LEARNING IS A NECESSITY, AND A REALIZATION THAT THE PUBLIC IS NOT SUFFICIENTLY WELL INFORMED. MOREOVER, STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS ARE TENDING MORE AND MORE TO ENLIST THE AID OF THE UNIVERSITIES IN PUBLIC SERVICE. IN ORDER TO REALIZE THE PROMISE OF GREATNESS, HOWEVER, UNIVERSITY EXTENSION DIVISIONS REQUIRE CHANGES IN THE LEVEL OF SELF SUPPORT, AND IMPROVED REWARD SYSTEM FOR EXTENSION INSTRUCTORS AND PROFESSORS, BETTER MEANS OF RECRUITING AND TRAINING EXTENSION PERSONNEL, AND THE STRENGTHENING OF SUCH NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS AS THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY EXTENSION ASSOCIATION. (THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE TENTH ANNUAL SEMINAR ON LEADERSHIP IN UNIVERSITY ADULT EDUCATION, MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY, 1967.) (LY)
