Notes:
1 page., Author's perspectives about the role of the agricultural communications faculty member, especially in connection with agriculture. Describes tendency to serve as an honest broker, neutral convener, information provider, question raiser, joint problem solver and sometimes conscience. Expresses advocacy for the mission of agriculture in service to humankind, but not as advocate or apologist for the structures, functions and actions within agriculture - or as blanket adversary or critic.
