The staff members of an engineering school, perhaps more than those in any other group, are subject to continually changing technical responsibilities. The rate of change in the decades preceding 1950 was relatively slow, and new material was easily assimilated by competent individuals. In recent years, the increasing flow of new knowledge has presented a situation in which the effective instructor must be at the same time an ardent student. The danger of becoming obsolete is ever present. This paper attempts to analyze some of the problems which are presented to the senior staff members, to the middle-aged staff members, to the young men, and to the administrators. Some possible solutions to these problems are also presented.
