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 this one-day symposium to discuss issues affecting community colleges, particularly as they relate to enrollment, persistence, and transfer between two- and four-year institutions. The proposed agenda will include testimony and discussion by community college leaders, policymakers, researchers and practitioners on (a) best practices used to inform students about college and help students prepare to enroll in community colleges; (b) the types of programs and efforts needed to better ensure the persistence and degree completion of community college students; and (c) innovative programs that facilitate the transfer process from two-year to four-year institutions. The Advisory Committee will also conduct a public comment and discussion session. Individuals who will need accommodations for a disability in order to attend the Symposium (i.e., interpreting services, assistive listening devices, and/or materials in alternative format) should notify the Advisory Committee no later than Thursday, November 29, 2007 by contacting Ms. Hope Gray at (202) 219–2099 or via email at hope.gray@ed.gov.
