Hearing on the Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965: Titles III and VIII. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, One Hundred Second Congress, First Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The United States House of Representatives' Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education met in one of a series of hearings on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965. This session heard testimony on: (1) Title III of the Act, addressing a program that provides aid to institutions of higher education which serve large numbers of disadvantaged students and that are in a weak financial condition; and (2) Title VIII, which provides aid to higher education institutions for establishing cooperative education programs. The discussion focused on strengthening institutions, historically black colleges and universities, a program of Endowment Challenge Grants, encouraging the training of minority teachers and professors, the varying mission and needs of community colleges versus four-year institutions, changes in the way the grants under the titles are administered, in particular a "wait out" period currently required before funds can be obtained, and issues surrounding the training of the work force of the future. Witnesses appeared representing professional education associations, community colleges and technical schools around the nation, historically black institutions of higher education and the Department of Education. The text contains testimony, prepared statements of the witnesses and statements of others who were not able to appear. (JB)
