Statement By Alfred L. Moye, Deputy Commissioner Bureau of Higher and Continuing Education Before the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education.
Moye, Alfred L.
Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, Strengthening Developing Institutions, is discussed in this presentation to the House Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education. The history of the Title from its inception is traced. Designed to strengthen the academic quality of financially weak institutions, Title III is viewed as a reflection of the social context of higher education in the mid 1960's. The Federal government recognized the need to aid the development of curriculum, faculty, administration, and student services in struggling institutions. Title III authorizes financial assistance for four types of activities: (1) increasing administrative efficiency; (2) faculty development; (3) curriculum improvement; and (4) improvement of student services. Eligibility requirements of Title III, and the resource sharing and cooperative arrangements between institutions are detailed. Two divisions were formed in 1973 to more effectively deal with the variety of eligible institutions seeking aid. The Basic and Advanced programs are explained. The funding history of the Title, application procedure, and selection process are also discussed. Statistical aspects are tabulated in Appendix A and examples of successful Title III projects are found in Appendix B. (SF)
