The Mission of Rhetoric and the Rhetoric of Mission Statements.
Smith, Philip E., II
ADE Bulletin, n121 p30-36 Win 1998
Discusses mission statements from various English departments. Finds that the most successful mission statements move credibly and convincingly between three kinds of rhetoric, using the specialized rhetoric of disciplinary insiders, the rhetoric of academic inquiry that can function across disciplines, and the general public rhetoric that serves best to address audiences outside the disciplines and institutions.
