The findings and recommendations of the Advisory Committee do not represent the views of the Agency, and this document does not represent information approved or disseminated by the Department of Education.

These papers represent a segment of the varied and divergent opinions of the higher education community. These research papers and the data contained in them are the sole work of the authors, and do not necessarily represent the views of Advisory Committee members and staff
