The Agricultural Economics Department recently completed its third year of involvement in USDA’S Faculty Exchange Program. This year we had five participants instead of the usual four; they came from Russian, the Ukraine and Kazakhstan. While in Nebraska they took classes, developed new course outlines and wrote articles that they will use on their return to their universities. While in the United States they traveled and learned about our business and work with the Scottsbluff Extension Service, learning about extension and distance education. All these things were designed to help them make changes when they return home. The following are their impressions of the U.S. and Nebraska, along with some thoughts on the Faculty Exchange Program.
