Merisotis will give opening remarks, Jeff Selingo will make very brief introductions (ie.
name, rank, and serial number, no long bios) of the panelists, and then go straight into

Conference Call on Higher Ed/Early Learning -- Martha Kanter's Office
When: Thursday, September 10, 2009 1:00 PM-1:30PM. Central Standard Time
Where: Martha Kanter's Office
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
My apologies, as I was clearly doing too many things at once today. What appears to work
on both Martha's and Bob's calendars is from 1 :00 to 1 :30 on Thursday, not noon as this
indicates. I believe Leigh is clear on all this, but I want to make doubly sure due to my time
goof before I invite participants. I know that this works for Bob, and the calendar looks as
if this works for Martha. Leigh or Martha, if you could just please confirm as soon as you
get this, and I will invite participants first thing in the morning , cc'ing each of you. We can
come to the Undersecretary's Office and get the call set up to go just before 1 :00.
Again, my apologies (Lord, what a day ... )
Karen
All ,
As per Carmel, I have been tasked with finding time on Martha's and Bob's calendars to
do a call with student groups on the Higher Ed/Early Learning piece before this Friday.
The ONLY thing avai lable is this 30-minute time slot tomorrow. Zakiya/Leigh, please
confirm their avai labi lity so that this call can indeed occur. (Note to Massie: Gabby is not
available at this time.)
Thanks so much,
Karen S-K

Per Greg's email:
Immediately following the senior staff meeting on Wednesday, September 16th (from
8:30 - 9:15) a briefing wi ll be held in the Secretary's Conference Room by The Parthenon
Group on the segmentation analysis that they've conducted over the past several years.
Parthenon's work with districts is informing much of the emerging secondary school
strategies and has led to significant changes in investment of financial and human
resources, especially around the re-engaging student (dropout) and development of
portfolios of program and school options.
We hope you will stay for this important briefing. Please let Angelica An nino know if you
plan to attend.
Thank you,

Mr. Shireman:
I hope this note finds you well.
Harley Frankel suggested that I shoot you an email. I' m in the JD/MBA program at
Stanford and I'm interested in doing an externship in DC during the school year working on
college access. Harley said you would have good advice about where to look.
By way of background, after college, I worked for QuestBridge, a nonprofit in Palo Alto that
runs a college admissions program for low-income students - I've also attached my
resume.
If you have a few moments free, I'd love to talk with you.
Thanks a lot,
Steven

From Jeff Bleich:
King Alexander is the President of CSU Long Beach. King served on the Higher Education
Working Group with me during the campaign. He and I were discussing legislation that is
currently before Congress and some potential language changes that we'll need to make
to ensure that funds aren't siphoned away from public higher ed. If you could find a few
minutes to meet with him, I think it would be well worth it. He's a very close student of the
legislative process and a remarkably smart person.

Session II - Supporting your Community: New Federal P-20 Funding
Opportunities - Congressional Hall B
Although many states are being forced to reduce funding for education, millions of
dollars in federal grants that range from early childhood to higher education are being
made readily available for local education relief. Despite shrinking budgets at the local
district or state level, grant money for Migrant Education, English Language Learners,
Title I and low-income students can continue to support your commitment to student
achievement and success. Hear from senior leadership in the U.S. Department of
Education detail how you can become a savvier consumer of federal grant opportunities
to help you better serve your constituents.

This meeting is for all who would like to learn more about Vangent's new project. See
description from their emai l ask below:
"One of Vangent's larger education research projects is the design, development, and
operation of a national clearinghouse of course articulation agreements between
institutions of postsecondary education. The purpose of the clearinghouse is to provide an
education planning tool for students and families that would allow them to look up which
courses from one institution would be accepted for credit by another institution.
We have been working with a number of commercial and not for profit organizations on
potential designs and operating characteristics for the national clearinghouse. Vangent is
now at a point where we would like to run some of these potential designs and operating
characteristics by appropriate Department of Education executives to get their thoughts
and recommendations."

you are obviously the key person on these issues! Plus, it's always wonderful to see you
and to provide a chance for you to talk with our folks.
The agenda is attached. The meeting will be held in Denver, Colorado on October 8-10.

Meeting with Cal-PASS -- 6C100

The purpose of this meeting is to hear from a team working on the California Partnership
for Achieving Student Success (Cal-PASS) and learn how the Cal-PASS project has
moved beyond data collection, to putting data into the hands of teachers and policymakers
to make a difference in the classroom.
Cal-PASS is a voluntary data-sharing collaboration. Funded by the State of California and
major foundations, it is free to participating schools and colleges. Most school districts, all
110 community colleges and nearly all public universities share their data. While protecting
student identities, Cal-PASS enables practitioners to track cohorts' progress from middle
school through college. It tells them how their students fared at the next level , how many
required remediation in college and how many persisted through the first year and beyond.
With Cal-PASS, the emphasis is on collaboration in using data to improve instruction and
results. By making comparative data more readily available, Cal-PASS helps educators
spot when curricula isn't matched to student needs or state standards and designed in
ways to improve student success rates. It engages teachers and college faculty from the
same disciplines to meet monthly in Professional Learning Councils, where they work
closely and collectively to use the data provided through Cal-PASS to diagnose strengths
and weaknesses and align school and college curricula.
Update: The meeting will be attended by
Jordan E. Horowitz, Senior Director for Special Projects, Cal-PASS
Brad Phillips, Executive Director, Cal-PASS
Dana Quittner, Sr. Director, Intergovernmental Relations
Pam Burdman, Formerly of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

FERPA conversa on
Barmak and I have been in touch with the executive director and founder of the Fordham
Center on Law and Information Policy. They are just wrapping up a state by state survey
of the K - 12 databases set up as a result of NCLB and have found significant problems
with FERPA compliance. Barmak and I have asked them to share their findings with you
in light of the creation of the longitudinal data base for higher ed that appears in the draft
Senate legislation.
Would you be willing to meet with us between 10:30 am and 4pm on Thursday or Friday
next week? Barmak and I would attend, as well as Jamela Debalak and Joel Reidenberg

Dear Deputy Under Secretary Shireman:
I am writing on behalf of David D. Arnold, who is President of The American University in
Cairo as well as current President of the Association of American International Colleges
and Universities. Mr. Arnold will be leading a delegation of five presidents of American
universities overseas to Washington on October 26 and 27, 2009. The delegation would
very appreciate the opportunity to meet with you while they are in Washington, if possible
on the afternoon of October 26. The members of the delegation are:
David D. Arnold, President, The American University in Cairo
Peter Armacost, President, Forman Christian College (Pakistan)
Christopher G.L. Hall, President, American University in Kosovo
Joseph Jabbra, President, Lebanese American University
Celeste Schenck, President, American University in Paris
AAICU is a leadership organization representing American institutions of higher education
overseas. (A membership list is attached). AAICU institutions are among America's most
important cultural and educational assets throughout various world regions. Institutional
autonomy, independent boards of trustees, and accreditation by a major recognized U.S.
accrediting authority are conditions of full membership.
AAICU institutions' language and area studies programs provide thousands of American
students with critically needed skills necessary for U.S. global competence. Our
institutions provide an excellent education to American students in the histories, cultures,
and languages of a wide variety of world regions. But we also provide much more: the
experiences we offer overseas allow young Americans to develop the skills they will need
to compete globally. These experiences also foster American students' understanding and
appreciation of other cultures, and encourage them to develop relationships with other
young people from different countries that will serve them well as they enter the global
marketplace.
AAICU institutions provide privileged spaces of intellectual interchange, academic freedom
and responsibility, where independent learning and democratic values are allowed to
flourish. Our graduates are thus prepared for the rapidly changing needs of the twenty-first
century.
AAICU institutions have strong roots in their respective host countries and enjoy wide
recognition in their international settings. They are therefore capable of bridging cultures
and fostering dialogue among nations within the framework of the American liberal arts
tradition. They are both expressions of and vehicles for the growing international
acceptance of the U.S. system of higher education and the increasing importance of
English as the language of international communication. In the contemporary knowledge-
driven world, with its global economy and trans-border social
issues, they play a crucial role in establishing, embodying, and verifying standards of
educational excellence.
Further information regarding AAICU can be found on the website: www.aaicu.org. I
would be pleased to provide any additional information or you or
your staff reached on 202-333-0345 or

college students. You should talk about what we're doing to promote access to (and
success in) higher education, which Linda, the headmaster, is very concerned about.

Dear Martha,
Larry has spoken of you often and I'm glad he has finally connected us as I'll be in
Washington with some Boston Arts Academy faculty and students at the end of October to
present at the Arts Schools Network Annual Conference, October 28- October 31. Your
schedule permitting, I would be so appreciative if you could spend 30 minutes with me and
the students to learn about BAA- I am the founding headmaster - and the work we are
doing. I'd also love to hear about your work. Larry thought we would have a great deal in
common as BAA has- besides a rigorous curriculum in both arts and academics- a strong
college readiness program. I'd love to discuss the financial aide aspect of college
admissions - so many of our students are the first in their families to attend college and
are very much in need of financial assistance. In addition, we are also very committed to
tracking our graduates once they are in college. Our alumni program grows stronger each
year.
I am presenting at the Network Conference on Friday, Oct. 30, 11 :15am - 12:15pm,
otherwise I can fit my schedule around your calendar. I do hope we'll have the opportunity
to connect.
Best wishes,
Linda

Bob and Daniel,
Good morning!
I'll touch base with John Linton, Director of the Office of Correctional Education. Several of
my recent conversations with him have related to issues of Pell Grants and prisoner re-
entry, so I suspect his input would be helpful. I'll follow up with everyone with the meeting
logistics ASAP.
Couple of quick questions: do either of you have any specific times on Thursday that work
best for you? Also, in the event John is not avai lable on Thursday (October 29th), are there
any times on Wednesday (October 28th) that may work?
THANKS!

Mr. Shireman
My name is Robert Murphy and I am an employee in the Office of
Federal Student Aid in the Enterprise Risk Management Group. I am
participating in a leadership development program here at FSA. This
program (Foundations of Leadership) pairs participants with a mentor
and together they develop a leadership competency curriculum. Part
of the curriculum I have with my mentor (Denise Leifeste) is
conducting information interviews with leaders in the agency.
I am very interested in speaking with you about your responsibilities
as Deputy the opportunities and challenges you see
ahead and in particular the expanded role of the Pell Grant with the
move to 100% Direct Loan. I know you are extremely busy but if you
could find any time to speak with me I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you very much for your time.

We've reserved the auditorium for longer to allow the substantial number of delegates
from each country time to meet and mingle.
India's delegation will be lead by Indian Human Resource Development Minister Kapil
Sibal. The Indian delegation will number approximately 22, consisting of Ministry and
Embassy staff, as well as Indian university presidents.
The US delegation will be lead by Margot and the State Department's Under Secretary for
Public Diplomacy Judith McHale. Our delegation will include ED and staff, as well as
between 11 and 20 university Presidents. The invitations have been sent out and we'll
have head counts as we get closer.
The purpose of this meeting (and the meeting the day before with AD, Tony and Sibal) is
to initiate the Education group of the US-India Strategic Dialogue. We are also interested
in fostering direct university-to-university connections with India, and should India pass
reforms to allow it, direct investment in their higher education system. We are planning to
send Martha to India the first week in March with a delegation of US university presidents
for this purpose, and to do the India side of the Strategic Dialogue.
I hope that answers any preliminary questions that you may have. If not, please let me
know.

Bob:
I still have tentative plans to be in D.C. on November 3rd and hope to have a brief visit with
you if your schedule permits. Consistent with the Secretary's advice to schools, MOHELA
is very much interested in preparing for the passage of H.B. 3221. Many of our schools in
Missouri are now preparing for a switch over to 1 00% direct lending on July 1, 201 0 and
MOHELA would like to be prepared to service these loans as provided for under H.B.
3221 . I would like to share with you the steps we are pursuing to be positioned to continue
providing services to the students attending all of Missouri's 154 instituti ons of higher
education.
I also hope to hear from Zakiya and would like to meet with her during my visit as well.
Bob, I would appreciate the benefit of your comments and advice on how MOHELA can
best proceed with participating in the transition from FFELP to becoming a Direct Loan
Servicer for the State of Missouri. Key Missouri Financial Aid Directors met with Senator
Clai r McCaskill last week and all clearly indicated their desire to continue working with
MOHELA as their primary servicer. We intend to do everything we can to make this a
smooth transition to FDLP state-wide.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you are available to meet on November 3rd so
that I can schedule my other appointments.

Bob, let me know if this meeting seems ok to you, and if so, then I'll invite others. (Hal, Jon
and John W.)
The board of directors for this group will be in town. (Board website:
http://www.iaclea.org/visitors/aboutlboard.cfm) They don't want to talk policy so much as
to be generally introduced and acquainted with the administrative side of policymaking.
(Lisa says that they are more used to interacting with the Hill/legislative side.)
Are interested in finding out how we interact w/Hill, how we decide on and make budget
policy.
(Not sure how much we will be able to share, but this is what they'd like to hear in a quick
overview.)
Understanding is that they are less interested in asking for any specific things and aren't
even necessarily interested in discussing the campus crime reporting, but are more
interested in who we are and how "we" play a role in the policy development process.
Proposed Agenda:
1. Bob introduction (who you are, how you got here, where you've worked before)
2. What you/we do in OUS/OS
3. Priorities that may be of interest to them (or generally what we're working on ... )

Dear Mr. Shireman:
I write to request a meeting with you on November 6, 2009, on behalf of
Dr. Pamela Shockley-Zalabak, the Chancellor of the University of Colorado
at Colorado Springs. Next Friday the Chancellor will be meeting with
leaders in Congress and MaryEllen McGuire at the White House Office of
Domestic Policy. When we asked who at the Department of Education
we should meet with Bethany Little, from the Senate HELP Committee,
recommended that we meet with you. It would be an honor to meet with
you as the Chancellor would like to discuss the Southern Colorado Higher
Education Consortium, a consortium of ten higher education
institutions she help form in June to assist the region with addressing
issues of access to higher education and workforce development. Last
year the Chancellor met with candidate Obama, and shared his
enthusiasm for this issues. We would like the opportunity to meet with you
to discuss the goals of this consortium to make sure that they are in line
with the overall goals of the Administration, and , possibility, present itself
to be a demonstration of its goals.
The consortium goals include building and nurturing a college-going
culture; more effective cooperation between two-year and four-year
institutions; establishing an effective policy voice and advocacy for higher
education in Southern Colorado, and working together to improve K-12,
partnerships, teacher training, workforce training, research opportunities
and available resources. Its strategies for accomplishing these
goals include focusing on access and completion initiatives; creating an
effective and efficient organizational structure; implementing model
programs with broad impact; identifying financial resources to support the
work of the Consortium as well as the efforts of individual students; utilizing
partnerships with K-12 schools; engaging in col laborative efforts with other
institutions such as the Air Force Academy; and establishing public/private
partnerships to extend the resources available for consortium programs.

Each November, AACC hosts a "Washington Institute" for presidents and government
relations types and other campus officials who want to learn about "how Washington
works" and to get inside access to policymakers. It is designed as a seminar though it has
grown to more than 40 attendees so it's losing a bit of that feel. The idea is to get high-
level, thoughtful people to discuss how the various components of the Washington political
machinery operate-Hill, Executive Branch, media, think tanks, and then the lowest of
them all , lobbyists. The event will be held at the Washington Court Hotel.
At any rate, we would be honored to have you join us for an hour or a little less (including
questions) on the morning of Nov. 9, to talk primarily about the Obama Administration's
agenda for community colleges and higher education generally, but also to talk a bit about
how policy is made in the Department of Education. We would like you to speak at 8:30
A.M. but we can take you a bit later in the morning if that meshes better with your
schedule.
You could of course use this opportunity as an informal focus group to find out what is
going on our campuses this fal l.

Undersecretary Kanter, the Alliance Board (listed below) thought
that it would be very important that the Department of Education
Jearn about this initiative. I really hope you can attend. David
Dear Undersecretary Kanter,
I am writing to invite you to an important meeting, "Moving the Needle,"
November 12-14 2009 at the Hotel Dupont here in Washington
D.C. The New Leadership Alliance for Student Learning and
Accountability is inviting key leaders to engage in dialogue and
planning about the future of higher education. Among the invited are
leaders of associations, college and university presidents, accreditation
officials, foundation representatives, faculty leaders and researchers
who will specifically address the question, "Where does higher
education need to be at the time of the next reauthorization of the
Higher Education Act and what do we need to do to get there?"
The Alliance, a new organization, has as its mission bringing together
organizations and groups representing and supporting higher education
to encourage educationally valid assessment of, accountability for,
improvement in student learning. The Alliance aims to act on the
agenda set forth in the January 2008 document New Leadership for
Student Learning and Accountability: A Statement of Principles,
Commitments to Action (attached). The organizers of Alliance-its
Board of Directors is listed below--invite you to attend this meeting and
join an initiative to effectively assess, account for, and improve student
outcomes in higher education.
It is crucial that, by the next reauthorization, we in higher education are
able to demonstrate consistent improvement in our work. Our
November meeting will, with your help, specify our collective aims and
further develop goals and strategies for this initiative. As someone

leading efforts to improve higher education, you are essential to this
discussion. We hope that you will join us as we examine steps to:
* Advance efforts to assess student learning through the creation of
shared norms and mechanisms, and encourage the continued
development of common reporting on student learning and meaningful
forms of accountability.
* Create connections for discussion, coordination, and planning
between and among existing and new projects, and across higher
education constituencies and other stakeholders.
* Help shape the national story about student learning and assessment
through integrated communication within and beyond higher education
circles.
We believe that collective efforts, beginning with this meeting and going
through the reauthorization, will produce greater coherence and unity,
and ultimately quality in improved student learning, in the work of
higher education in the United States.
Your input in this meeting is important. We will begin with dinner on
Thursday, November 12 and adjourn by noon on Saturday, November
14. The Alliance will cover expenses related to the meeting including
food and lodging. Travel assistance is available if needed.
We will be following up shortly to discuss your attendance and
participation. Thank you.

Subject: Invitation from Jamie Merisotis, Lumina Foundation for Education- Convening
on Effective Distribution of New Federal Funding
Dear colleague:
This year we have seen an unprecedented level of federal activity to
expand access and success in higher education. New federal higher
education programs like the Access and Completion Fund and the
American Graduation Initiative will provide new resources targeted to
strengthening and improving higher education. However, the ultimate
success of these initiatives will depend in large part on designing an
approach to the distribution of funds that assures their maximum
effectiveness.
To this end, and on behalf of Lumina Foundation for Education, I invite you
to participate in a convening on the topic of structuring the distribution of
funds in new federal higher education programs to assure maximum
effectiveness. The goal of the convening wil l be to provide advice to the
Department of Education in crafting an effective system for funds
distribution, including fostering collaboration, assuring that funds are
distributed in timely manner and that they are used for the intended
purposes, and leveraging state and institutional action.
The convening is scheduled on November 30, and will be held at the Park
Hyatt Hotel in Washington, D.C. , beginning with a noon lunch and
wrapping up by 5:00p.m. It will include around 30 participants, and is
intended to engage a select group of experts rather than the full range of
stakeholders in Federal education programs. We feel we have selected a
463 5/3/2011 11:30 AM
FOIA Page 463
I November 30, 2009 Continued
Monday
group of participants with knowledge of the issues to be addressed by the
new programs (particularly completion and community colleges), and
understanding of how state and institutional policy and finance systems
best respond to Federal initiatives. The convening will be attended by
several key members of the Administration, which has expressed a keen
interest in its results.
To help structure the discussion, we plan to prepare a draft RFP for review
at the convening. The draft is intended to help frame the discussion and
not in any way predetermine a possible outcome. The questions we hope
to address with the draft and through the discussion at the convening
include the following:
1 . What are the characteristics of effective partnerships involving
states, institutions, foundations, and others, and how can the approach to
distribution of funds encourage their formation?
2. How can the process assure a timely response from states and
institutions?
3. Should the new funds be administered in a similar way to existing
federal higher education programs? Which current federal programs could
serve as examples for how to-or not to-structure the new programs?
4. Do formula-based approaches using a base-year benchmark have a
role?
5. How can we assure that the intent of the new programs is met? How
can accountability be assured?
6. Should funding for future years be made conditional on progress or
results? Should funding be reallocated in out years to more successful
programs and models?
7. How can we assure that federal funds do not simply supplant or
offset state and institutional funds? How do we assure they are not used
by states to "restore" past funding cuts?
8. What innovative, "outside the box" approaches to funding
distribution should we be thinking about?
9. How can clear metrics be made part of the process?

We have not seen this level of national attention paid to higher education
for many decades. I bel ieve we face an enormous challenge to follow
through on the promise of this attention, and assure the success of the
new federal higher education initiatives targeted to critical national
priorities. We may not have this chance again for a long time to come, so
it's critical that we do everything in our power to make these programs as
successful as possible.
Please respond to Nancy Eaton
(neaton@luminafoundation.org; 317-951-5301) regarding your ability to
participate in the convening. Of course, we would be happy to answer any
questions you may have.

Dear Mr. Shireman,
I am wri ng to ask for your help and par cipa on in a special in-depth interview that my
rm, Hart Research, is conduc ng on behalf of the Bill and
Melinda Gates Founda on among a select group of DC
educa on policy leaders. This interview is part of a research
project designed to explore opportuni es and challenges
facing America' s educa on system and how to best solve
these problems. Your exper se, experience, and insights
would be extremely valuable to us in this project, and we
hope that you will share with us your thoughts and ideas.
As you may know Hart Research Associates, Inc., of which I am president, has conducted
surveys and focus groups over a 35-year period for various clients, including the Wall
Street Journal and NBC News. Our rm has interviewed Fortune 500 chief execu ve
o cers, U.S. Cabinet o cials, members of Congress, heads of major chari es, educators,
members of the media, and other professionals in key leadership posi ons on behalf of
our corporate, poli cal, and nonpro t clients. The reason we are able to interview
members of such elite groups is that we are extremely sensi veto the need to protect
the privacy of the individuals we survey. If you would like more informa on about our
company, please feel free t o visit
www.hartresearch.com<h p://www.hartresearch.com/>.
The interview, conducted by me or a senior level sta member, would be over the
telephone and take as li leas 15 minutes and no more than a half an hour of your me.
Of course, we will be completely exible in coordina ng the ming around your
schedule, but we are hoping to conduct the interviews before Friday, December 4. A
very small number of people will be par cipa ng in this special project, and your
con den ality will be strictly maintained.
I would be honored if your calendar would permit you to par cipate in an interview.
Because I understand that your me is valuable, I would also like to o er- if you can
accept it- a small honorarium of $150 for your par cipa on. If you' d prefer, we are
also happy to direct your honorarium to a charity of your choice.
If you are interested in par cipa ng in an interview or you have any ques ons please
simply respond to this email or call my colleague Susan Shell at 202-234-5570. If we do
not hear from you, someone from my o ce will reach out to you to set up an

I think we just must be missing each other.
Hope I can schedule a quick call with Bob tomorrow or the 2nd to talk
briefly about GEAR UP Scholarships and the work being undertaken by
Colorado. The scholarship is portable and I've discussed this idea with
Lynn Mahaffie over at OPE.
What I'm looking for is really Bob's thoughts on negotiating in-state tuition
for these CO GEAR UP students. They're Juniors now and we want to
make sure everything is in place by the time they graduate, laying the
ground work for future GEAR UP students. I'm looking for thoughts on
what would be better in this kind of a situation - a tuition
waiver? Scholarship 501 (c)3? Scholarship agreements with each
Western State University?
Thanks again, Zakiya. I don't anticipate this call taking very long. Hope to
hear back from you soon.

For the Friday morning meeting on the 18th of December, Jo Anderson & I have invited
Pedro Noguera, a professor at NYU's Steinhardt School of Education as well as the
Executive Director of the Metropolitan Center for Urban Education, to join the Senior Team
meeting.
Pedro is a prominent public speaker on education reform, and has published extensively
on issues of school reform, diversity, and the achievement gap.
He considers himself to be a critical friend of the administration, and we have therefore
invited him in to speak about his views and have an opportunity to talk with and hear from
the Senior Team here at ED.
You may also know him as a leader in the "Broader, Bolder Approach to Education", a
group of public policy experts in various fields (housing, education, civil rights), and f rom
across the political spectrum, working to "break a decades-long cycle of reform efforts that
promised much and have achieved far too little."
We do hope you will come for this session - and feel free to invite others whom you think
would benefit from the opportunity.
His bio is below:

Dear Robert Shireman:
I wonder if you would have time for a phone conversation related to an article I am writing
for the Washington Post Outlook section?
The Post is interested in the implications of the economic downturn for college admissions.
I saw your 2002 paper for the James Irvine Foundation and found it helpful.
I have talked to quite a few people, including Tony Broh, Jerry Karabel, Tom Mortenson,
and Sarah Turner. I am developing a good sense of the situation in both the flagship
publics and the privates, but I do have some remaining questions ...
If you are available for an interview, I would treat your comments as background, unless
you specifically wished to be quoted on a particular matter.
Thanks for considering this.

Dear Bob, Sylvia, Peter, and Ed:

will be held January 4-7, 2010, at the Marco Island Marriott in Marco Island, Florida. This

New Direc ons for Improving Higher Educa on Quality
Given President Obama's ambitious 2020 goal for the U.S. once again to lead the world
in college graduation rates, how can smaller private colleges and universities increase
completion rates while at the same time improve the quality of the education they
provide? Although, on balance, private colleges do better than other sectors of higher
education in retention and timely graduation of first-generation students and others,
what challenges will institutions face in reaching this ambitious goal? What is the
leadership role of college presidents in securing a better future for their students, their
campuses, and the country? A panel of distinguished higher education leaders, each with
a unique perspective on these important questions, will lead a wide-ranging and
thought-provoking discussion.
Robert M. Shireman is deputy undersecretary of the U.S. Department of Education, with
responsibilities for college financial aid and other higher education initiatives. A leading
expert on college access and financial aid, Shireman previously served as a Congressional
appointee to the Federal Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance, as an
advisor to U.S. Senator Paul Simon, and as a member of President Clinton's White House
National Economic Council. Shireman is founder of the Institute for College Access and

Success and the Project on Student Debt.
Sylvia Manning is president of the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central
Association of Colleges and Schools. Previously, Manning was chancellor of the
University of Illinois at Chicago. She also served as vice president for academic affairs at
the University of Illinois and for 19 years held a variety of positions, including executive
vice provost at the University of Southern California. She currently serves as chair of the
board of directors of the Noble Network of Charter Schools in Chicago and as co-chair of
the mayor's Chicago Green Ribbon Committee.
Peter T. Ewell is vice president of the National Center for Higher Education Management
Systems (NCHEMS), a research and development center. A member of the staff since
1981, Ewell's work focuses on assessing institutional effectiveness and the outcomes of
college and includes both research and direct consulting with institutions and state
systems on collecting and using assessment information in planning, evaluation, and
budgeting. He has been a consultant to more than 375 colleges and universities and 24
state systems of higher education. In 1998 he led the design team for the National
Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and subsequently chaired its technical advisory
panel.
Edwin H. Welch has been president of the University of Charleston (WV) since 1989.
Previously Welch served as department chair of sociology and anthropology at West
Virginia Wesleyan College, assistant dean of Lebanon Valley College, academic vice
president of Lakeland College, and provost of Wartburg College. Prior to joining
academia full time, Welch worked in the Executive Office of the President at the White
House. A September 7, 2007, New York Times Magazine article highlighted Welch's
efforts to infuse the University of Charleston with a culture of rigorous assessment of
learning outcomes. The Foundation for Independent Higher Education chose him as the
first recipient of its Charles L. Foreman Award for innovation in private higher education.
Later this fall I will set up a conference call so that we can discuss this session in more
detail and agree on any revisions to the title and description that will used in the final
printed program. In the meantime, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate
to contact me or Michelle Friedman, CIC Program Manager, at mfriedman@cic.nche.edu
or (202)466-2730.
I am pleased to report that Institute registrations are running ahead of last year. Your
leadership will contribute to what is shaping up to be an attractive and useful program. I
look forward to your participation.

Hi Bob,
We're going to be in Washington around January 12th, and I was hoping you might have
time to meet to discuss the scholarship data standard
(www.scholarsnapp.org<http://www.scholarsnapp.org>) , recent changes to FAFSA and the
financial aid process, as well as where the foundation's work is heading. We have been
working with the department more on the K-12 and data sides, but I'd like to have the
chance to learn more about what the department's plans are in the higher ed space and
especially around financial aid.
Best wishes for the holidays,

The 27th is pretty open after 10, the 28th 10-12 is good. The one thing that could throw
in a wrench is if I'm picked for jury duty on the 20th and I
have a long trial. (But we'd have plenty of notice to find a
replacement.)
Make sure we talk before then about exactly what role you want me to play and what
it's fitting into.

Hi Bob,
The White House Mentoring Program would like to host an event at the department
regarding FAFSA on January 27th or 28th 2010 . Peter wanted
me to reach out to you to ask if you would give the
presentation to the parents and students who are
participating in the program. The White House is launching
the mentoring program this month that matches young DC
students with federal mentors and this would be one of the
first in a series of events around education.

Dear Bob,
As good fortune would have it, I am headed to Department of Labor today to talk with folks
from the Office of Apprenticeship about leveraging the learning acquired through
apprentice training to accelerate time to postsecondary credentials based on the award of
academic credit for such learning. In talking with Ellen, it appears this may be tightly
aligned to the type of innovative approaches the Department of Education is exploring as
part of the American Graduation Initiative.
I look forward to talking with you soon. I am in the office the remainder of this week and
most of next week. If you would like to connect soon, I should be available and am happy
to come to your office if you like.
Kind regards,
Jim

Hi Secretary Shireman-
Dr. Corrigan will be back in DC on January 21st and 22nd and would like to set up a time
to meet with you. President Corrigan is interested in discussing the success that SF State
has had with the Direct Loan program since 1994 and the work the University is doing to
recruit low-income, non-traditional students. Please let me know what your availability is on
those days and if you have any questions.
Thanks,

Can I take you up on your assent to our getting together when I am next in
DC?
As I mentioned, I will be there for an entire week, attending two different
conferences, but I can be very flexible with stepping away from either.
Here are the ranges of time that would work for me:
--Thursday, January 21 up to 2:00p.m.
-- Friday, January 22 any time
--Saturday, January 23 until noon
--Monday, January 25 after 3:30p.m.
--Tuesday, January 26 11 :00 a.m. to 6:00p.m.
--Wednesday, January 27 breakfast
As I said when we chatted, I think it would be helpful-- certainly to me and
likely to the larger cause we both serve -- if we could talk off the record a
bit about what I'm trying to do with the HLC and about concerns we may
share regarding the evolution of higher education at this time.
I hope you'll pick a time that works for you, and then I'll build my plans
around it.

Dear Bob:
I hope you had a good weekend and MLK Day.
I left you a message on your voicemail last Friday afternoon as a follow up to my
discussion with Pat Dickerson about St. Andrews coming under the umbrella of another
institution's accreditation. I explained to Pat that our strategic partners and I would like to
meet with you, Pat, Robin Minor, and Sally Warner early next week at your offices in
Washington to discuss this option as well as another idea that I explored briefly with
Pat. It's my understanding that some of the OPSE staff are involved in Negotiated Rule
Making this week and could not be available until next Monday at the earliest. I told Pat
that I would contact you about getting together. Could you meet with us either next
Monday or Tuesday (January 25 or 26)? It would be a little easier for us if the meeting
could be in the early afternoon so we have time to travel to Washington that
morning. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you at your
earliest convenience.

I thought I would try once again to see if our bosses schedules might finally be in
alignment! Chancellor Birgeneau will be back in DC later this month and I wanted to check
in with you about the possibility for a meeting between him and Secretary Duncan on
Tuesday, January 26. The Chancellor would like to spend a few minutes with the
Secretary on higher ed issues, including a revision to the tax code that would eliminate
taxes on student stipends and scholarships to cover the cost of attendance. Currently,
only the tuition portion of the stipend is not taxable.
Let me know if you think there might be a window of time, and we can work on making this
happen!

Event Title: Community Colleges and Competitiveness: Generating Economic
Opportunity through innovation in Postsecondary Education
Event Date: January 27, 2009
Event Time:9:00 am to 12:30 pm
Location: Center for American Progress, 1333 H Street NW, Washington, DC
Community Colleges have become highly visible in public policy in the last year. The once
step-child of higher education is being heralded as a key player in reviving economic
opportunity for workers and national competitiveness for the United States. A key drive of
this intense interest is The Obama Admi nistration's American Graduation Initiative which is
poised to infuse over $12 billion into the nation 1 ,000+ community colleges over the next
ten years. This investment has the potential to be transformative.
Yet, will it be a thoughtful transformation? Since thei r great expansion in 1947, with
President Truman's Commission on Higher Education, community colleges have evolved
to embrace three core activities: university transfer education; occupational education and
developmental education. They currently exist in more or less tension with one another.
The integration of these activities through the lens of student success is the key to
realizing the promise of community colleges as engines of economic opportunity and
competitiveness.
On January 27th, 2010, the Center for American Progress will release three (possibly four)
papers that explore a student - centered vision of community colleges and how to integrate
the three historic missions of community colleges.

Brenda,
Thanks again for considering participating in the event.
I have included a draft agenda for the event. I dropped in your name as a closing speaker.
Below are links to the three papers we will be officially releasing at the event. We may be
ready to release our career navigation paper but I am still working on edits.
If we don't release that paper your closing remarks would occur earlier or we could add
you as a lunch speaker.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Sincerely,
Louis

It was good to see you also and good to learn that Johann will be joining your team.

Does 1/11 or 1/18 in the afternoon work for a meeting with Brenda?
Aslo might she have anytime early afternoon on 1/27 to close an event on community
colleges CAP is hosting.
We are releasing three new community college papers that day. Dr. Jill Biden will open
the event. It would be great if Brenda could close with some short remarks.

Luke and I would greatly appreciate the Department's input on two issues related to the
proposal to switch to 100 percent direct lending:
(1) Luke mentioned that the Department has indicated that roughly 94 percent of schools
have switched to direct lending, or have taken steps to prepare for a switch to direct
lending. What types of "steps" have schools taken?
(2) In the letter Senator Alexander wrote to Secretary Duncan on November 3rd, he
argued that it's too late for colleges to switch to direct lending because colleges start

making financial aid decisions for students in January, and continue to do so until the
beginning of the fall semester. I spoke with Bob Shireman briefly about this issue at the
Department's holiday party, but I still do not feel like I fully understand the issue. Luke and
I would greatly appreciate any additional information the Department can provide to help
us counter Senator's Alexander argument, which, of course, has only been strengthened
by the passage of time.
Specifically, we are wondering whether students who receive their financial aid
offers in January can sign up with specific lenders as early as January. When do students
typically receive their financial aid offers and sign up with specific lenders? If the switch to
direct lending occurs after students sign up with specific lenders, how would the switch
impact their agreements with their lenders? More generally, what is the extent to which
students will be burdened if schools switch to direct lending after students receive their
financial aid offers? What additional burdens will schools have to take on if they switch to
direct lending after they send financial aid offers to their students?

The following technical drafting assistance is being provided as a service to Congress, and
does not necessarily represent the views of the Administration or the Department of
Education.
As a general matter, note that the private loan holders are not required to, and may choose
not to, allow their loan to be consolidated. Whi le most state laws require lenders to accept
prepayment of consumer loans without penalty, that may not true for all private student
loans. Moreover, since private lenders can determine their own terms and requirements-
a payment from ED may not be considered a prepayment but a purchase and a
sale/purchase of a loan is totally at the discretion of the selling lender. Also, as with
FFELP loans, private loans have been securitized and part of the securitization deal may

be a restriction on early payoff of the loans.
As for general operational concerns, is it uncertain whether ED could require the private
lender to provide ED with the payout information (the Loan Verification Certification).
Moreover, even if the borrower is entitled to such information, using payout amounts from
the borrower will vastly complicate things. And, unlike FFEL, ED would have no easy
mechanism for handing the inevitable over and under payments made to the private
lenders.
On another operational matter, it may not be possible to have this authority begin 30 days
after enactment, particularly in light of the many major changes that would be made by this
bill, and all the related system changes that would be required. Clearing the necessary
forms through OMB will probably take about 4 months alone.
Page 2, Line 19: The term "eligible borrower" is described solely in terms of the borrower's
status on federal loans - it does not address borrowers who are in default or are seriously
delinquent on the private loan. Since a lender would (as discussed above) have discretion
whether to allow the loan to be consolidated, lenders may have an economic incentive to
allow consolidation of loans on which the borrower is in default or in serious delinquency
while refusing to allow payment of loans on which the borrower is current. Not sure
whether there is a solution.
Page 2, line 23 through page 3, line 2: Note that, while we cannot think of another
solution, using the HEA definition of default may be operationally difficult to apply to private
loans. For example, while the HEA defines default as more than 270 days past due, FSA
operationalizes that definition by using GA claims paid. There is, of course, no GA for
private loans. Even if the 270 day standard is used, it may be difficult to obtain this
information.
Page 5, lines 11-12 and page 6, lines 21-22: In these two places the bill indicates that the
borrower may include in the consolidation "related fees and costs (as determined by the
Secretary). Note that ED wouldn't have any basis for excluding any fees or costs allowed
by the borrower's promissory note. If the goal is to have the loans repaid and the amount
included in the consolidation loan, the full amount demanded by the private loan lender will
need to be repaid. If the Department says it won't pay certain of the fees or costs required
by the lender, the effect would be that the loan won't be consolidated.
Page 3, lines 10- 23: Note that there may be some operational issues regarding how ED
would be able to determine whether the student was eligible for an unsubsidized or PLUS
loan in the past.
Page 5, line 19 through page 6, line 16: In addition to a typo on page 5, line 22
("dispersed" should be "disbursed") , the calculation of the amount of private education
loans that may be consolidated has been changed from Federal Direct Unsubsidized
Loans, on page 5, lines 23-24 and page 16, line 14, to (subsidized) Direct Stafford Loans.
This is no longer parallel to page 3, lines 10-17, and needs to be changed back to a
reference to Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans. What was the intent behind this change
from the previously-provided technical drafting assistance?

Good afternoon,
Since we are now just a week out from The Corps Network's Annual Forum and from the
plenary discussion on Pathways to Postsecondary Success, which you have all graciously
agreed to participate in, I wanted to touch base to make sure you all have what you
need to feel comfortable presenting on the panel.
As you will recall, the plenary is scheduled to take place from 1:00-1:45pm in the
ballroom of the Fairmont Hotel (2401 M Street, NW) a week from today (Monday,

Monday
2:00 PM - 2:30 PM
By way of an overview, Secretary Salazar will be joining us that afternoon between
12:30-1:00pm to unveil a new "youth engagement initiative" at the Department of the
Interior. I believe he plans to discuss how DOl intends to invigorate and diversify its
workforce by making a concerted effort to provide opportunities on public lands to
young people who have not traditionally been engaged on public lands (i.e. urban youth,
minority youth, youth with disabilities ... ). You are all welcome and encouraged to attend
this part of the program is you are able.
Then Steve Patrick of the Gates Foundation will briefly discuss the emphasis that Gates
has placed on post-secondary education and on stackable credentials for disadvantaged
youth. For you information, I am attaching some information on a credentialing project
that The Corps Networks is current working on with support from the Gates Foundation.
I thought it would be helpful, therefore, if you all could talk about your own agencies'
intentions as they pertain to providing opportunities for disadvantaged youth in the 21st
century economy. If you each speak for about 10 minutes, that will leave about 15
minutes for questions at the end.
Jane, is DOL considering any specific strategies to reach and provide services to this
population? Will these strategies be included in WIA reauthorization? Is there a role for
Corps as part of such an effort?
Bob, how is the Department of Education thinking about this population? Presumably a
successful approach to developing a stackable credentialing system would require
coordination between Ed and Labor. Is such coordination currently underway? Bob, just
for you own information, many of our corps run charters schools and many others are
housed-in or have relationships with postsecondary institutions, so education is a big
part of the corps model.
Mark, speaking of coordination, we thought you might be able to address the provision
of wrap-around and supportive services to this population as they pursue various
educational and economic opportunities. Is HHS talking with other federal partners
about developing a comprehensive approach to addressing the needs of disadvantaged
youth? Can Corps serve as a point of entry/intake for coordinated service provision?
Hopefully these questions will give you some ideas regarding how to frame your
remarks. If, however, they are not helpful, just ignore them? ©
Let me know if you have any questions or need any additional information prior to next
week.
Thanks so much for agreeing to participate. We are very much looking forward to seeing
you.
