Abstract In response to a perceived de-emphasis on cooperatives in university curricula by cooperative leaders, Schomisch and Torgerson surveyed the situation in upper Midwest land-grant institutions and painted a bleak picture. The study was followed by companion surveys in the Northwest and the north-central states, in the southeastern and sour-central states, and in the West.
