The Department of Agricultural Economics recently completed its fourth year of partnering with USDA in a Faculty Exchange Program. During August of each year beginning professors from Russian and the Ukraine arrive in Lincoln, stay for about five months and then return to their homelands. While in Nebraska they take classes, travel, develop new class outlines, collect material and write articles, all of which are used when they return home to introduce to new classes and extension activities at their respective universities. The last group brings the total to 17 visiting professors that we have hosted at Nebraska. Impressions of the U.S. and Nebraska from last falls group, in their own words, follows.
