Brown) which suggests the professional ethos is often at odds with the needs of students and other realities on campus; (3) "Towards an Ethic of Academic Discourse, Or, Why Do Professors Talk the Way They Do?" (Bennett Ramsey) which considers the need to balance academic research and academic accessibility; (4) "Pedagogical and Civic Response-Abilities" (Stephen M. Johnson) which examines open-ended learning and multicultural classrooms; (5) "An Agenda for Involving Faculty in Service" (Deborah Hirsch) which proposes service learning as a form of faculty professional service; (6) "The Promise and the Flaws of Public Scholarship" (Alan Wolfe) which presents public scholarship as an obligation to share knowledge; (7) "Public Scholars: In Search of a Usable Present--A Reply to Alan Wolfe" (Jay Rosen) which stresses the need to disseminate knowledge and create it in a group fashion; (8) "Public Scholarship and the Land-Grant Idea" (Scott J.
