V»-» ` Iii if I ·‘; · · ~ E · ` I _, .; S4 UNIVERSITY OF 1<1sx*rUc1{Y . Faculty. To accomplish these aims and purposes the College A of Agriculture and Home Economics has built up a scholarly, able, _ li AR and forward-looking faculty. The men and women who compose ·_ ai ‘ _ the faculty are selected because they are good teachers, have a H i thorough knowledge of their chosen fields, and have the ability to ci . guide and inspire others in their study of these fields. Some devote i . S} part of their time to the Experiment Station or to the Extension N Division. Many have national and international reputations in j o‘ _ T their respective fields. Some have brought distinction to them- p Sl ` selves and the College by their discoveries and investigations, V _ ‘ others through books that they have written, and still others by V A their work on state and national problems of many kinds. The s1 privilege of associating with and studying under men and women `4 tl who know how to teach and who have the ability to contribute to s1 _ the solution of current problems in agriculture and home economics q - l is an important point to consider in the selection of a college. te l Buildings and Equipment.
