University Extension and Public Service in the Age of Economic Globalization: A Response to Thompson and Lamble

  • Allan C. Lauzon University of Guelph


The Journal invited Allan Lauzon to comment on the preceding article by Gordon Thompson and Wayne Lamble. In his response Lauzon examines the larger shifts in Canadian society, making the case that this represents a fundamental shift in dominant values; examines how this value shift is impacting upon the university; examines the implications of value changes in the university for university extension units; and examines and comments on some of the ideas put forth by Thompson and Lamble. The Journal will provide an opportunity for Thompson and Lamble to respond to Lauzon's comments in the next issue of theJournal (fall 2000).
