Comments, speeches, and questions delivered at the Quality of Life Symposium are compiled in these proceedings. As an exploratory session, the conference objectives were to (1) become better informed about New Mexico--its resource base, the economy, social and cultural base, and the environment; and (2) to evaluate and discuss the role of New Mexico State University in contributing to the quality of life of its people. Speakers and their topics included: Some Economic Problems of New Mexico by Lee Zink, Director, Bureau of Business Research, University of New Mexico; Socioeconomic Factors and the Quality of Life by Grace Olivarez, Director, Institute for Social Research and Development, University of New Mexico; Natural Resources and the Environment by John Clark, Director, Water Resources Research Institute; and Human Factors and the Quality of Life by N. Scott Momaday, New Mexico State University. Questions and answers posed by speakers follow the presentation of their position papers. Also selected are representative comments from a wide variety of discussion topics--a definition of "quality of life;" jobs with dignity; communication of university efforts; expansion of the extension program; the university's leadership function; and service.
