Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965: A Study of Program Compliance with Congressional Intent.
Senecal, Robert Joseph
The study examined the compliance of programs funded under Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965 with Congressional intent, and explored the nature of the relationships between the measures of compliance and selected organizational characteristics of participating colleges and universities. Eighty-two programs, funded during the fiscal year 1965-66 in six states, were appraised. A questionnaire mailed to each Title I program director, interviews with the national director of Title I, materials from state agency administrators, and a review of college catalogs were the primary data sources. Tests of association such as Chi-square and Kendall partial rank correlation coefficients were used to describe the level and direction of relationships among the variables. The findings supported the following: Congressional intent of Title I was multidimensional and most Title I programs did not comply with all five measures of Congressional intent. The majority of the noncompliant Title I programs were from small private institutions which showed no evidence of administrative commitment, little contact with the administering agencies of Title I, and limited funding experience.
