Oversight Hearing on the Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965: Hilo, Hawaii : Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, One Hundred Second Congress, First Session, Hearing Held in Hilo, HI, July 1, 1991, Volume 4

In one of a series of hearings held in communities around the nation on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965, the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education met to hear testimony from higher education professionals, business people, and students in the state of Hawaii. In particular the witnesses, grouped in seven panels, testified to the needs of citizens in Hawaii and in the larger Pacific area. The first panel consisted of five officials from the University of Hawaii (UH) who spoke about the needs and plans of that institution, the diverse nature of the student body at UH, and recommendations for the reauthorization. The second panel contained representatives from Hawaii's community colleges testifying on the concerns of those institutions. The third panel included a college admissions counselor from a local private high school and a student support services program director from UH speaking on preparing, informing and counseling high school students and on the Special Programs for Students from Disadvantaged Backgrounds. The fourth panel of witnesses included three financial aid administrators from institutions around the state and the president of a private career school whose testimony concerned the financial aid needs of students and proposals for changes or reauthorization of various federal student aid programs. On the fifth panel were a state director on vocational education, a UH administrator, a representative of the local building and construction industry and a representative of a local carpenters union all speaking about developing the workforce. The sixth panel consisted of two student loan administrators addressing proposed changes to the legislation. The last panel was made up of students from UH testifying to the needs of low-income, disabled and non-traditional students. The prepared statements of the witnesses and of those not able to attend as well as letters and supplemental materials are also included. (JB)
