EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
On September 25-26, the Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance will conduct around table meeting at the University of Vermont on the topic of postsecondary access for low-income students. This will be the third in a sequence of interrelated meetings devoted to theCommittee’s most important legislative charge: improving postsecondary access for low-incomestudents. The first meeting was held at the University of Mississippi in April 1999, the second atBoston University in April 2000. The upcoming meeting in Vermont will build on the findingsfrom the first two meetings to further define and identify an effective long-run federal strategy toimprove access.Having primarily addressed the
 financial dimension
of the access problem in its first twomeetings, the Committee, in its morning sessions on September 25, will consider a wide range of issues about the
academic dimension
of the access problem. The Committee approach will be toframe the issue around associated early intervention, remediation, and student support service programs and policies. The overall objective of the three meetings is to fashion a communityconsensus on an effective access strategy that is aimed at
all 
dimensions of the access problem.If successful, the resulting strategy will play a major role in guiding the actions of a newAdministration and Congress as the next reauthorization approaches.This paper is designed to prepare Committee members for the upcoming meeting. To do so, the paper presents:
the major findings of the Committee’s first two round table meetings;
a brief overview of the
academic
dimensions of the access problem;
a description of early intervention, remediation, and student support services;
a summary of findings to be addressed by the panel of researchers in Session I; and
a framework for the round table discussion in Session II, including respondents and key policy questions to stimulate discussion.The results of the Vermont meeting will play a critical role in the formulation of therecommendations that the Advisory Committee will make to the new Congress andAdministration early next year. The Committee plans to play an active role in encouraging policymakers to conduct a comprehensive dialogue about the current condition of access.Because the nation has yet to solve the access problem, and because focusing federal policy onaccess is an uphill battle, the Committee has made protecting the postsecondary interests of thisnation's poorest students its top priority.
