FERVER, JACK CALVIN
THIS STUDY DEALT WITH ONE OF THE PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN THE POSSIBLE UNIFICATION OF GENERAL AND COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICES--CAN AND SHOULD THE PRESENT COUNTY EXTENSION DIRECTORS OF THE EXTENSION SERVICE SERVE AS COORDINATORS OF THE TOTAL OFF-CAMPUS EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES OF THE UNIVERSITY. THE PROBLEM WAS ONE OF IDENTIFYING THE PERSONAL AND SITUATIONAL FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH ACTIVITY IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. DISTRICT AND STATE STAFF MEMBERS OF THE MICHIGAN COOPERATIVE EXTENSION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION SERVICES ASSESSED THE 79 COUNTY EXTENSION DIRECTORS ON THE BASIS OF TIME SPENT IN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. TWENTY WERE JUDGED TO BE IN THE HIGH QUARTER AND 20 IN THE LOW QUARTER. FROM THESE, FOUR COUNTY DIRECTORS WERE SELECTED FOR INTENSIVE CASE STUDY, THE CENTRAL QUESTION ASKED BEING HOW MUCH TIME WERE THEY SPENDING AND HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD THEY SPEND ON EACH OF FIVE AGRICULTURAL AND FIVE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ITEMS. ON THE BASIS OF FINDINGS, IT WAS TENTATIVELY CONCLUDED THAT THOSE DIRECTORS WELL RATED BY THE ADMINISTRATION FOR THEIR AGRICULTURAL PROGRAM ACTIVITY COULD BE SUCCESSFUL IN A BROADENED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT ROLE.
