(Continned from Page 6)
amount of federal funds for our
teaching and research enterprise
that have been and are still pour-
ing into this University underline
our national obligations.
That a substantia portion of our
buildings and a significant por-
tion of our operating budget comes
from the state raises the question
of whether our dual responsibili-
ties are or must be in conflict.
Is what is good for the nation
also good for the state and vice
versa? At the high plane of prin-
ciple there is no conflict. Ulti-
mately, the welfare of its constitu-
ent states cannot be separated
from the nation as a whole; our

very political organization of na-
tional and international responsi-
bilities testifies to that conviction.
BY WAY of summary and as a
stimulus for debate we offer the
following statements and recom-
mendations that grow out of this
report.
1) Faculty need for profession-
al growth and for time .for mu-
tual exchange and intellectual
stimulation sets practical limits
over how far the University may
profitably expand its extension
teaching without endangering fac-
ulty professional growth morale.
2) Undergraduate education is
a vital part of a university pro-
gram.

3) There is no need to choose I
whether this University is to be a
national or a state agency. Na-I
tional and state interests are, in
fact, complementary instead of in-
compatible.
4) Extension teaching or other
activities e.g. certain kinds of re-
search, motivated solely by a de-
sire to fudther public relations, are
incompatible with our purposes
and are, in the end, unlikely to
prove good public relations.
We recommend:
1) Devise budgetary and or-
ganizational arrangements de-

signed to keep research and gradu-
ate teaching from drawing on fac-
ulty resources to the point of
starving undergraduate teaching.
2) Where the limited supply of
faculty forces a choice between
teaching and research give pri-
ority to teaching.
3) Scrutinize all proposed and
existing activities to eliminate
those that do not conform to the
proposition that the University's
services to its clients are most
properly self-terminating, i.e. have
a catalytic rather than a depend-
ence inducing outcome.
