FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Nicole A. Barry, Deputy Director, Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance, Capitol Place, 80 F Street, NW., Suite 413, Washington DC 20202–7582, (202) 219–2099. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance is established under Section 491 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended by Public Law 100–50 (20 U.S.C. 1098). The Advisory Committee serves as an independent source of advice and counsel to the Congress and the Secretary of Education on student financial aid policy. Since its inception, the congressional mandate requires the Advisory Committee to conduct objective, nonpartisan, and independent analyses on important aspects of the student assistance programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act, and to make recommendations that will result in the maintenance of access to postsecondary education for low- and middle income students. In addition, Congress expanded the Advisory Committee’s mission in the Higher Education Amendments of 1998 to include several important areas: Access, Title IV modernization, distance education, and early information and needs assessment. Specifically, the Advisory Committee is to review, monitor and evaluate the Department of Education’s progress in these areas and report recommended improvements to Congress and the Secretary. The Advisory Committee has scheduled the hearing on Tuesday, April 4 in Washington, DC to launch its new Study on Innovative Pathways to Baccalaureate Degree Attainment (Innovative Pathways Study). This three-year initiative, which was originally included in the Senate’s HEA reauthorization bill, will identify creative programs and strategies designed to increase the likelihood that students from low- and moderateincome families attain a baccalaureate degree. The Advisory Committee will focus on ways to eliminate major academic, institutional, and financial barriers facing students and families from middle school through college. Over the course of the study, the Committee will produce a series of reports that highlight promising approaches to ensure that students who DATE AND TIME: PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13111 aspire to such a degree move through the access and persistence pipeline in an efficient, effective, and timely manner. These reports will be designed to encourage federal, state, and institutional policymakers to embrace best practices that, over time, will narrow income-related gaps in degree completion. The proposed agenda includes expert testimony and discussions by policymakers and representatives from state agencies, institutions, and early intervention programs who will address: (a) Innovative pathways in middle school and high school designed to increase low- and moderate-income students’ chances of attaining a baccalaureate degree, (b) promising strategies for improving the transition from high school to college, including credit-based transition and dual enrollment programs, and (c) programs in higher education designed to increase the number of low- and moderateincome students that attain a bachelor’s degree, including those programs to increase the rate of transfer and articulation from two-year to four-year institutions. The Advisory Committee will also conduct a roundtable discussion among Committee members and panelists on the Innovative Pathways Study, followed by a public comment session. The Advisory Committee invites the public to submit written comments on the Innovative Pathways Study to the following e-mail address: ACSFA@ed.gov. Information regarding the Innovative Pathways Study will also be available on the Advisory Committee’s Web site, http:// www.ed.gov/ACSFA.
