In addition to the periodic publications of the Review of Agricultural Extension Science, seminars and symposium related to agricultural education, strategies of agriculture, or rural development are held two or three times each year. Well-known specialists or outstanding alumni are invited to lecture such meetings. Sometimes, scholars or specialists from abroad are also invited in order to exchange the latest technology and research information. For many years, the faculty members in the department have cooperated with National Science Council, Council of Agriculture, and various Farmer's Organizations to conduct numerous studies in the fields of rural sociology and extension education.
