Resolution on the Role of State Higher Education Agencies.
p1,4 May 1984, p1,3 Fall 1984
Resolutions on the role of state higher education agencies are presented, along with related excerpts from the newsletter of the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO). The resolutions represent the position of SHEEO concerning the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965. The resolutions call on the U.S. Congress to: define within the Act a state higher education agency; recognize that higher education data collections and dissemination services of the National Center for Education Statistics are in the national public interest and should be fully funded by the Department of Education; increase support for research and demonstration projects to improve the delivery of adult learning services; increase funding for programs under Title II of the Higher Education Act (libraries); require institutions applying for assistance under Title III (institutional aid) to demonstrate consistency between their proposals and existing state plans and institutional authorization, and that applications for aid be subject to approval by the state higher education agency; halt the erosion of direct aid to students; expand federal support for teacher education and for international education; reactivate facility grant and loan programs authorized under Title VII (facilities); and substantially increase funding for graduate education.
