The Role of Extension in Controversial Studies: The Case of Interstate Dairy Compacts.
Bailey, Kenneth W.
Journal of Extension, v40 n1 Feb 2002
The case of the University of Missouri Extension's role in a very controversial study on dairy compacts illustrates that care must be taken to conduct such studies in an objective and scholarly manner without unnecessarily alienating stakeholders. Academic freedom and integrity must be maintained. At the same time, Extension cannot operate effectively without these important stakeholders. (SK)
