Abstract

Contrary to recent commentary, reliance on individual faculty initiative and learned societies in setting the academic agenda has greater promise for contributing to the land grant mission than more administratively driven and dominated systems. Learned societies have the advantage in evaluating disciplinary content and are thereby the appropriate evaluators of quality. A distinguishing characteristic of all university professors should be a continuing commitment to active participation in research in support of their principle function, teaching, be their students on-campus undergraduate or graduates, off-campus clientele, or professional peers. The popular notion that all, or even most recognized peer-review journals are oriented mainly to disciplinary (versus problem-focused) research is challenged.
