A 1993 survey of 171 deans/department chairs (100% response) indicated that 27 family and consumer sciences undergraduate programs had been eliminated. Total undergraduate enrollment was 2,088, but nationwide demand for teachers was 7,903 and for extension professionals was 1,165. Only two states (Utah, Washington) had slightly higher supply; most anticipated a teacher shortage. (SK)
