This issue presents papers that were presented at an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) seminar on university extension and community outreach. They give an overview of the philosophy and work of extension departments in some of the universities of Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore. "University Extension and Community Service in Malaysia" (Saidin Teh, et al.) discusses extension and community service activities that have been and will continue to be undertaken by four universities. "The Role and Efforts of Prince of Songkla University in Community and Rural Development" (Chamnarn Pratoomsindh) describes the design and improvement of educational programs and projects directed toward the development of the Southern Thailand region. "Ramkhamhaeng University: Experiences in Extension Programmes" (Pat Noisaengsri, Usa Korntaptim) provides an overview of the university's programs in general and distance/extension education in particular. The paper, "Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University: Thailand" (Wichit Srisa-an), which was not presented at the seminar, is included because it provides an example of the innovative developments taking place in the area of widening access to universities in the region. Other papers that give overviews of extension programs in universities are "Chulalongkorn University: Experiences in Extension Programmes" (Phiphat Thiarry), "National University of Singapore: Experiences in Extension Programmes" (Lim Hoy Pick), and "Kasetsart University Experiences in Extension Programmes for the Development of Small Farmers and the Public" (Tatchai Sansingkeo). "Present Status and Prospects for the Future of University Extension Management in Developing Countries" (Sulaiman Hj. Mohd. Yassin) focuses on the topics named within the context of national development. (YLB)
