Abstract

The State University System of Florida has es tab 1 i shed A "Quest for Excellence11 in its Master Plan. It is a bold plan of action that will "unleash the University System from those time-bound constraints which would allow only gradual change. 11 It is also clear that the State University System of Florida plans to compete successfully with the very best academic universities. In its mission statement the University of Florida, as a land-grant institution, administers the In"s·t itute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS), a special unit providing statewide food and .agricultural teaching, res.earch, and extension services. It is the opinion of the consultants that IFAS and FAMU can and should provide key leadership in the "Quest for Excellence11 as represented by successes in land-grant institutions in a few other key states (California, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota and New York).
