Getting Ahead in Oregon: Expanding Higher Education Opportunities for Minorities and Nontraditional Students. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Regulation, Business Opportunities, and Energy of the Committee on Small Business. House of Representatives, One Hundred Second Congress, First Session (Portland, OR).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Small Business.
As part of a series of field hearings examining the issue of education reform and the preparedness of the work force, testimony was heard on the need to expand higher education opportunities for minorities and nontraditional college students. Oregon, in particular, faces these questions because the state's economy is expected to change from timber-based to business-based in the coming decade. Such an economy will demand an educated workforce. The following witnesses testified: Deborah Nowlen-Hodges, a displaced homemaker and graduate of Project Independence, at Portland Community College; Terrence Taylor, a student at Portland State University; Robert Baugh, manager, Workplace Innovation; Mary Cohn, Tektronix, Inc.; Robert Frank, acting provost, Portland State University; Delsie Gilpin, student, Dislocated Workers Project; Andrew P. Lippay, of Cascade Steel Rolling Mills, Inc.; Daniel Moriarty, president, Portland Community College; Eva Parsons, of Cellular One; Dan Saltzman, vice chair, board of directors, Portland Community College; Glenn Shuck, labor liaison of Dislocated Workers Project, and Mary Wilgenbusch, president, Marylhurst College. The witnesses testified concerning adult education, blacks and higher education, the Dislocated Workers Project (a training program), labor force development, the financial aid application process, the need for aid, and local business needs and concerns.
