Hearings on reauthorization of Titles II, VI, VIII, X, and XI of the Higher Education Act are presented. For Title II, the college library programs, Congress seeks acceptable criteria for providing library aid based on need and to determine needs for traineeships and fellowships for professional and paraprofessional librarians. Considerations for Title VI (international education programs) include the improvement of foreign language and area studies as well as business and international educational programs that promote linkages between colleges and U.S. businesses engaged in international economic activity. Included is the text of H.R. 3190, which would require disclosure of foreign contracts and grants to federally-assisted colleges and universities. The three additional titles that are addressed are: Title VIII, Cooperative Education; Title X, The Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education; and Title XI, the Urban Grant University Program. Included is the text of S. 1338 to strengthen cooperative education programs. In addition, testimony is offered on the Minority Institutions Science Improvement Program. Supplementary materials include position papers and articles concerning the Near East Center Outreach program at the University of Arizona and an article by Steven Emerson entitled "The American House of Saud: The Secret Petrodollar Connection."
