Statement of Senior Vice President Terry W. Hartle Before the House Committee Hearing on Keeping College Within Reach

April 16, 2013

ACE Senior Vice President Terry Hartle testified before the House Education and the Workforce Committee on April 16, 2013, at the hearing, "Keeping College Within Reach: The Role of Federal Student Aid Programs." 

During the hearing, members and higher education experts discussed the upcoming reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA) and explored the question of whether the federal government should maintain its traditional focus on improving access to higher education, or move toward a system that ties federal aid to student outcomes, job placement, or graduation rates.

Hartle's testimony provides an historical overview of federal higher education policy and drew upon that history to identify lessons learned as Congress begins work on the HEA.
