The Illinois State Board of Education (IS BE) has been analyzing the impact of the State's
financial situation on meeting Maintenance of Effort requirements (MOE) on various U.S.
Department of Education (ED) programs. (State Fiscal Stabilization, Title I Part AIESEA
programs, Career & Technical Education(Perkins), Special Education).
This has led to the following questions that ISBE would like to pose to ED in an effort to
determine any actions that could be taken to avert issues in meeting the MOE
requirements.
Some background information:
Illinois' fiscal year runs from July 1 -June 30 and includes a lapse period. Lapse Period is
defined as the two-month period ending August 31 during which obligations outstanding at
June 30 may be liquidated under provisions of Section 25 of the Finance Act.
ISBE expects to have all FY 2010 State expenditures used in determining the level of
State support for MOE purposes vouchered by June 30, 2010. However, due to cash
availability issues, it is expected that the State's Comptroller will not issue warrants for at
least a portion of these vouchers until following the end of the fiscal year (June 30) and
some may not be paid by the end of the current lapse period (August 31).
There is proposed legislation in the Illinois General Assembly to extend the end of the
fiscal year lapse period from August 31 to potentially December 31. This will allow the
State to continue making FY 201 0 payments through calendar year end and vendors will
not be requirement to proceed to court of claims in order to obtain payments for FY 2010.
Our questions are:
1.) To fulfill MOE requirements , does Illinois need to just voucher payments by June
30 for the vouchered amounts to be included in the amount of State level support? Or
does a warrant need to be issued and the funds in LEA's hands by June 30?
2.) Can amounts vouched in FY 2010 and paid in the FY 2010 lapse period (July 1 -
August 31) be included in the amount of State
level support when making the MOE determination for FY 201 0?
3.) What happens if Illinois extends the FY 2010 lapse period past August 31 , can
amounts paid in the extended lapse period be included in the amount of State level
support when making the MOE determination for FY 201 0?
4.) Do the responses to these MOE questions change dependent on the program?
We are considering the impact on ARRA SFSF MOE, Title I Part A /ESEA programs MOE,
Career and Technical Education (Perkins) MOE, Special Education MOE.
We have had a recent monitoring visit on the Perkins grant and their interpretation was
very strict regarding expenditures and fiscal year definition.
We appreciate ED's consideration of these questions and look forward to any insight or
guidance you can provide.

Dear Mr. Shireman,
hitesh hathi here, from Here and Now, the national, Noon-hour news magazine on public
radio with host Robin Young.
(I'm coming to you via Liz Willen at the Hechinger Report.)
I'm putting together a segment on the growth of For-Profit Colleges, new regulations
being considered for the industry, and how this relates to
Community Colleges. This would be a feature segment, about
15 minutes, straight interview, no call -in.
Realize that it's a big topic, and really thinking of this as a primer, some basic facts and
definitions and a few things to think about.
Would love to speak with you about it. Happy to ring, or can be reached at 617 358
0236, till which,
Yours,
Hitesh

Hi Leigh,
I believe that Bill already spoke to Bob on the phone last week about
the June hearing. However, Bob did mention that he would like to be
briefed on Committee's latest report prior to the hearing. Would Bob be
available for a briefing during the week of June 20th or June 13th ?
I believe the briefing would take about an hour or less and staff would
come to LBJ.
Also, we are preparing materials for the Committee's members, so it
would be help for us to know what specific topics Bob plans to address
during his session. Thank you.

Subject: Introduction
Robert and James - I wanted to introduce you to Mark Edwards. He's Executive
Director of OpportunityNation. I f you don't know about it, this is a new campaign of Be
the Change, Inc., a nonprofit organization founded by Alan Khazei in 2007. They are
working to build a national coalition of anti -poverty non-profit organizations, business
leaders, leading thinkers, and grass roots organizations in an effort to bui ld support for
a non-partisan agenda for change. It builds on the Be the Changes ServiceNation
campaign, which culminated in the passage of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America
Act in the spring of 2009.
Mark recently contacted me as part of a listening tour to better understand the issues
around creating an Opportunity agenda, and in figuring out how they might hel p move
this agenda forward. I thought that some of the lessons from the work John Edwards
did to tackle an ambitious poverty reduction agenda this would be valuable, not to
mention all your other past and current experience/perspective.

Subject: Congratulations!
James - congratulations on your new role at Department ofEducationt Once you
get settled, I'd like to find a chance talk to you about some of the work we're
doing related to improving retention of community college students through
reducing unplanned pregnancy (i.e. connecting two Administration priorities). I
recently discussed with Robert Gordon and he thought there might be some
opportunities to weave this into future efforts related to AGI, the community
college summit this Fall, etc.
Also, over the next few months, we' re going to be developing a strategic plan for
next steps The National Campaign and other public and private organizations
could take to take this work to the next level. We'd love to get your input and

will of course share with you and your colleagues what we recommend.
On a more immediate note, we are planning a meeting for key stakeholders to
provide input on this plan in early October and want to make sure we are mindful
of the timing of the summit. Is there a target date yet? We wouldn' t publicize in
any way - just want to avoid scheduling conflicts.
Many thanks, and I look forward to working with you in your new role

Subject: Hello
James,
Congratulations on your new position at the Department. I hope you are beginning to
settle in over there. As you do, I wanted to follow-up on a conversation you and Amy
Wilkins had a few weeks ago. As I understand it, you all spoke about the Department's
continued efforts to increase college completion as well as the Access to Success
initiative our higher ed team has been working on with NASH to help 24 public systems
cut their success gaps in half by 2015. If it would be helpful to your thinking, I'd be happy
to bring Jennifer Engle, the Director of our higher ed team, over to talk with you about
A2S as well as her thoughts on ways to increase college completion.

Hi James-
It was nice speaking to you this morning. Congratulations on your new position. You have
certainly come to the Department at an interesting time. As I mentioned, I am now in
private practice (with Maggie in college, it seemed like a good idea). but still working on
higher education issues.
One of my clients is ITT Educational Services. Inc., a publicly traded company that
provides accredited, technology-oriented undergraduate and graduate degree programs
through its 120 ITT Technical Institutes and Daniel Webster College to help students
develop skills and knowledge they need to pursue career opportunities in a variety of
fields. ITT/ESI serves approximately 80,000 students at its campuses in 38 states and
online. I am writing today on behalf of Kevin Modany, the Chairman and CEO of ITT
Educational Services. Inc .• who will be in DC on Wednesday, July 14 and would very
much appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to discuss several issues related to
postsecondary education policy. This would be a general introductory meeting. We
understand that you are not able to discuss the proposed regulation at this time, but in
light of all that is happening we thought it would be useful to begin a general conversation
about the value proposition of ITT Tech and big picture issues of higher education policy.
Would it be possible to meet at 4 on the 14th? If that time is not convenient. we would try
to accommodate your schedule at another time on the 14th or even the 15th.
Thanks so much,

Farewell Happy Hour for Josh Lynn -- Le Bar at Sofitel -- 806 15th Street NW
As many of you may have heard, Josh Lynn will be leaving us at the end of this week to move to
Philadelphia with his new wife to pursue his MBA at the Wharton School. To thank Josh for his
hard work and many contributions here at Treasury, and to say good-bye to him before swarms of
new, ambitious classmates t ry to convince him that a $90 billion financial fee could cut into first-
year salaries and bonuses (and thus might not be the best way to pay back taxpayers for TARP
after all), Jacob, Victoria and I want to invite all of you to a farewell happy hour in his honor. It will
be this Wednesday, July 28, at Le Bar at the Sofitel (806 15th Street NW), beginning at 6:30. I look
forward to seeing you there.

Mike Friedberg would like a follow-up meeting (from the May 18th meeting) to get an
update on the strategic planning process. Specifically, here are his questions:
* How they are doing on their plan on increasing FSA's operational capabilities in
implementing 1 00% Direct Loan?
Perhaps Bill Leith and/or Sue Szabo can give a brief overview? In addition, I can
summarize the numerous IG and GAO reviews that are being performed to verify this and
the positive results that we have already received from some of these reviews.
* How they are doing with the monitoring and oversight functions, and how they are
doing with the loan purchase programs, staff wise?
I can talk to the loan purchase programs, using our standard weekly ECASLA report as
the basis for my discussion.
I can also speak to the hiring plans and our progress on those plans.
I can react to any questions he may have about our overall monitoring and
oversight functions.
* Further, they stated in their QFRs, that they consulted with various parties on their five
year plan. I was wondering ifthere is any more updates on those briefings.
I would recommend that Sam and/or Tim provide the same Strategic Plan briefing that we
will be giving to OMB. We will make sure Mike's briefing also covers 'parties consulted'
and process status.
* If they think there is anything that I should know that will help me prepare for the 2011
bill process or CR.
Tom (or I) can lead the discussion on the 2011 bill process. Given that the additional $82
million cut in FY2011 came from Mike, I think that I would have more questions of him.
Perhaps he is looking for our reaction to the cut?

Karmon,
As you know, we received the attached letter from Assistant Secretary Ochoa regarding
the MOE and related waiver for the funding available to states through the College Access
Challenge Grant. Deborah is on vacation in San Francisco right now and has asked me to
follow up based on our phone conversation earlier.
As you can well imagine, it is becoming increasingly complex to respond to the diversity
of MOE requirements that are emerging from various USDOE initiatives (e.g., SFSF,
Edujobs, CACG). As we reviewed the letter, we had some questions to which we need
responses so that we can know better what the challenge is that we will need to
address. As such, we are asking for a conference call for this Monday, August
23rd after 11:00 AM to accommodate Deborah's west coast time zone. Specifically, we
would like to better understand the following:
(a) What is meant by a "partial" waiver referenced in the second paragraph? If we can
address the "disproportionality" in higher ed funding, does this just make us eligible for a
partial waiver? Does this mean partial funding under CACG?
(b) Could you please be specific in terms of the statement, "you must restore funding in
higher education to a level that is proportional with the overall reduction in state
government expenditures throughout the state." Is the calculation we use to be based on
the average from FY04 to FY09? What specifically does Rhode Island need to address?
(c) What assurances would be acceptable to USDOE regarding a possible response to this
issue? Any adjustments in our state budget would require legislative action. Under

Kvaal, James
Edujobs, the Secretary is approving release of funding if governors provide assurances
relative to those MOE requirements and then a 60 day reporting period to describe how a
state is going to meet the same. What is envisioned in this situation in terms of an
adequate response?
Appreciate your assistance. We want to be sure we understand what USDOE is requiring
and the parameters under which this occurs.
Please let me know if it would be possible to schedule the call on Monday and please feel
free to call me if you should have any questions about our questions!

Could we get some additional information? It is not apparent to us
how the determination of need for a waiver or funds restoration was
made.
What data points did the Task Force use to determine that Minnesota
decreased higher education expenditures by more than it reduced
overall expenditures?
How much did the Task Force determine that Minnesota has to restore
to higher education to by-pass the need for a waiver?
Do you have any insight on how states are expected to restore funding
in these current budget downturns? Or is Minnesota the only state
presenting this issue for the CACG program?
Thanks again.

Science Association conference to address the status of public policy toward higher
education. I've just learned that the APSA has assigned us a time slot in the conference
schedule and wanted to let you know what it is: Thursday, September 2, 2 p.m. I believe
the panel wraps up by 3:45.
I will be back in touch again once we have been assigned a location, but I can tell you that
it will be somewhere in either the Omni Shoreham, Washington Hilton, or Marriott
Wardman Park hotels.
I've communicated with each of you individually about the content, but let me say a few
overarching things. Our panel is one of several organized around the broad conference
theme, "hard times." I've entitled it, "Hard Times and Higher Education." Our basic task,
as I see it, is to consider the status of federal financial aid toward students in the midst of
the economic recession, identifying trends and key developments, the implications for
U.S. society, and the challenges that lie ahead. I'd like to ask each of you to address these
matters in your comments, with Bob focusing on the Gl Bill and any related issues, James
discussing the Obama Administration's initiatives, and David discussing the situation of
community colleges. Each of you has a long view in these policy areas, and I'd encourage
you to situate your analysis of the current situation in the context of developments over
the past couple of decades.

Kvaal, James
It seems to me that paradoxically, "hard times" have actually coincided with some major
reforms in this policy area, as indicated by the creation of the 9-11 Gl Bill (its enactment
pre-dated the downturn but its implementation has coincided with it}, major increases in
Pell Grants, the development of 100% direct lending, and new federal funds for
community colleges (though less than expected at some points in the process). You might
wish to address that paradox in the course of your comments.
I will both chair the panel and serve as a regular panelist myself. In my chair role, I'll
make some introductory comments about the longer history of higher education policy in
the United States, a thumbnail sketch (5 minutes) that touches on the Morrill Act through
the Higher Education Act of 1965 and creation of Pell Grants. The purpose will be to lay
the context for our analysis of higher education policy in the recent past and especially
the past couple of years. Then I will invite each of you to speak, in this order: Bob, James,
David, each speaking for about 12 minutes. Then I will speak for about 10 minutes,
showing results of my research on how usage of higher education policies influences
Americans' attitudes about government and participation in politics. Then we will open
the floor to discussion/Q&A, and I will moderate.
As you prepare your comments, keep in mind that political scientists tend to know
(perhaps surprisingly} little about higher education policy, despite the fact that nearly all
of us work in institutions and with students who rely on it. We will not have an audience
of policy wonks, but rather of folks who probably have a general interest in the subject
and some who are just curious. It will be very helpful, then, if you can pitch your
comments with that in mind, providing some background on developments and
indicating their significance, rather than assuming that the audience is already familiar
with those things.
Thanks again for participating! I'll be back in touch as the conference draws closer.
Sincerely,
Suzanne

Hi Justin: As I said on the phoneJ I'd like to see if we can schedule
a time when I can come down to DC and meet with Deputy Undersecretary
Kvaal. The events of the past couple weeks have shown us how
important it is for us to stay in touch with the department on
regulatory directions and events. I'd like to spend a few minutes
talking with him about where he sees the regulator process and the
industry going. Also like to talk about this discrepancy with the
industry's version of the repayment numbers and possible
explanations. We can talk on or off the recordJ up to you all. I can
do it just about any timeJ but would like to set it up for as soon as
next week. Can you help? Thanks again for all your help with this
covering this story. RegardsJ JL

I am enclosing an article from a Connecticut paper over the weekend, in which someone at the

Mitchell College flunks Fed's Financial Test; State Commissioner Says School Still Stable
Mitchell's score on financial test plummets, but some question whether test is fair
assessment
By KATHLEEN MEGAN, kathy.megan@courant.com
August 21 , 2010
Mitchell College, a private, non-profit institution in New London, is the only Connecticut
college to fail the U.S. Department of Education's 2009 "financial responsibility" test.
The waterfront college with 1,000 full and part-time students is one of 149 private,
nonprofit colleges that slipped below what the federal agency considers acceptable
financial standing.
While the report is cause for concern, the college does not appear to be in any imminent
danger of closing, according to Michael Meotti, the state's higher education commissioner.

FOIA Page 1 091

Thursday
Kvaal, James
A statement from the U.S. Department of Education also said a failing score does
not mean that a school is in danger of closing or reflect on the quality of the
education at the school.
Meotti , whose agency uses the same financial formula as the federal government to
analyze financial strength, said he was aware of Mitchell's situation last spring and invited
administrators into his office to talk.
"I left the meeting feeling that this is not cause for alarm," said Meotti, "but is an issue that
we will be staying on top of."
A spokesman for Mitchell said the school was not prepared to comment on the report at
this point.
The "financial responsibility" test was developed by the federal agency as a way to make
sure taxpayer's dollars are not at risk in schools where students receive federal financial
aid. It uses a complex formula- taking into account debt, assets and other factors- to
yield a composite score that reflects the financial strength of a college.
"The composite financial score is one measure of a school's financi al responsibility," a
statement from the U.S. Department of Education said, "and is meant to gauge a school's
ability to meet its financial obligations.'
If a college falls below a score of 1.5-the scores run from minus 1 to 3- it fails the test
and could by subject to extra federal oversight and other measures. If the situation
continues over years, the federal agency could decide to cut off federal aid to students at
the school. Mitchell's score dropped to 1 in 2009, after being 2.6 in the two previous
years.
In other nearby states, there were 12 colleges on the list in New York, five in
Massachusetts, 13 in Pennsylvania, none in Rhode Island and one in New Hampshire.
Critics of the education agency's financial formula say it does not provide a fair
assessment of some schools' finances, particularly in the wake of the stock market crash.
Meotti said he learned, in his discussion with Mitchell administrators, that the drop in
Mitchell's score appeared to be related to the stock market decline and the construction of
a new dormitory.
He said there is no question that colleges and universities have been suffering financially
in this economy. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, which first reported the
financial responsibility scores, the numbers of private nonprofit colleges fail ing the test
has increased steadily from 88 in 2007, to 126 in 2008, to 149 in 2009.
He said that while Mitchell is facing some challenges, he doesn't see their financial
numbers "as a sign that they are in any impending t rouble."
He said that since the federal agency ran the numbers, the stock market has come back
some, and he doesn't think Mitchell is in the same place it was a year or more ago.
"If I had a son or daughter enrolling at Mitchell in the next couple weeks, I would not be
concerned about this federal index this year," he said.
Sarah Flanagan, vice president for government relations for the National
Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, said her daughter is
attending a college that failed the test and she is not concerned.

Flanagan said the accounting methods used to determine the schools' fi nancial
scores are fl awed and do not necessarily lead to a fai r assessment of a college's
fi nancial situati on. " Thi s li st i s not an indi cation of a college in trouble," she said.
"You coul d have instituti ons on t he list just because endowments went down."
In additi on, Flanagan said, there are instances where the federal agency has
actually made mistakes in computing t he formul a.
Matthew Hamill, senior vice president for the National Association of College and
University Business Officers. said he also had concerns about the methodology used by
the education agency.
"On the other hand," he said. "It is important for the federal government to be reviewing
the financial condition of colleges and universities that receive federal dollars. particularly
in the form of student aid. They need to be doing this kind of review, but they just need to
do it fairly and appropriately."

James,
I have been back to the DMV 2x more since our last liason there. Hope
your summer was better spent.
And thanks for the head's up re Peter. We've spent some time talking
through his situation. He appreciates the concern of friends
CAP is currently partnering with the Hamilton Project as a follow up to the
Future of American Jobs conference to produce a series of papers. Among
these papers, we are commisssioning a piece by Bridget Terry Long of the
Harvard Graduate School of Education on the emerging importance of
information in the higher education marketplace. The paper will describe
the need for information to support college decision-making and flaws in
the availability of timely, accurate and user-friendly information. It will also
suggest ways to integrate long-existing and newly available data to
empower students and families to make better college choices.

the paper for your review.
We would like to invite you to participate as a reviewer of this paper. I know
your time is scarce, but we would really benefit if you might be able to give
us feedback and help us to frame it in a useful and constructive way. The
most time effective way to do that is to participate as a reviewer of this
paper, which will entail joining CAP and Hamilton, along with a couple
other experts as we provide feedback to Terri and discuss how to
strengthen this proposal. The "author's conference" is scheduled for 12:30
to 2:30 on September 15th.
Please let me know if you can make it (or second best - have someone

Mercer, Wesleyan flunk feds' test of financial responsibility
By PHILLIP RAMATI
\/\/hen the U.S. Department of Education released its 2009 Financial Responsibility List
last month, Mercer University and Wesleyan College were among nearly 200 colleges
cited in the report.
The list is made up of colleges that failed the department's financial responsibility test.
The test measured data from fiscal2009, examining a snapshot of the school's financial
picture by studying its endowment values.
But officials from Mercer and Wesleyan said the data the federal department used is
skewed and doesn't give a complete picture of a college's financial standing. Moreover,
they said, the snapshots of their endowments were taken during a particularly volatile
upheaval of the stock market, which has since been on the rebound.
"Really, the thing that changed most dramatically were endowments," said Larry Brumley,
senior vice president for marketing and communications at Mercer. "Investments had
fallen when the market dropped, and that's when the snapshot was taken."
Rick Maier, vice president of fiscal affairs at Wesleyan, said the department's list has
"mechanical errors. "
He said, "2009 was such a unique year in terms of the stock market. They've used this
standard which no one really paid much attention to before. All of a sudden, it's come into
focus."
According to information published by The Chronicle of Higher Education, the department
152 4/22/2011 9:17AM
FOIA Page 1124
I September 21, 2010 Continued
Tuesday
Kvaal, James
measures colleges using a complicated formula. Colleges are rated from a -1 to a 3.
Colleges that score a 1 to a 1 .4 may be subject to restrictions on how federal funds are
distributed. Schools below a 1 are subject to extra requirements by the Department of
Education, including posting letters of credit equal to at least 1 o percent of the federal
student-aid funds they receive.
After two straight years of posting perfect 3s, Wesleyan scored a 0.6 in fiscal 2009.
Mercer had scores of 2.8 and 2.0 its previous two years before posting a 1 in fiscal 2009.
The National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities issued a
statement the day after the Department of Education released the list, assuring the
public that most of the colleges are on solid financial ground.
"In many cases, colleges only appear on the list because of the accounting
methods that do not consider the institution's overall resources," the statement
read. "(Some schools that) appear on the list based on the day the snapshot was
taken, and today would pass the test with flying colors."
Maier and Brumley said they expect their respective schools not to be cited when the list
for fiscal 201 o is released next year.
NAICU officials said they're working with the Department of Education to come up
with ways to change the way the financial responsibility scores are calculated,
though department officials said there are no imminent changes to the formula.
Jane Glickman, a spokeswoman for the Department of Education, said the list isn't
meant to punish schools.
"It's done to ensure federal taxpayer money is protected," she said.
Glickman said the financial score is one measure of a school's financial
responsibility and is meant to gauge its ability to meet its financial obligations. It's
not meant to imply that the schools listed are in dire straits.
Wesleyan officials point out that the college has been proactive in saving money, enacting
budget cuts when the recession first began.
"We've reacted to the general economy, not the Department of Education," Wesleyan
spokeswoman Susan Welsh said. "We've been fiscally responsible. Our staff and faculty
have been extraordinary with our budget cuts."
Brumley said despite the decline in Mercer's endowment when the market fell, it had no
impact on the college's operations.
"(The department) is looking at balance sheet strength, not operational strength," Brumley
said. "We've been operating in the black for several years."
Brumley said Mercer has had record enrollment, with revenues increasing from $152
million in 2007 to $180 million this year.
"In every way, the university is moving forward," he said.
Brumley said Mercer chooses to reinvest its money into the college's programs and
facilities "rather than just sock away money to build up the ratio. There were institutions
that did just that."
Maier said a new audit for fiscal 201 o will be finished in a few weeks and is expected to
show how much effect Wesleyan's efforts to reduce expenses and maximize income have
had in the past year.
Welsh said she and other members of the Wesleyan community are looking forward to a

great year.
"I feel like this is going to be Wesleyan's best year,n she said. "We've had a 20-percent
increase in enrollment. Next year is our 175th anniversary . .. . We've got so many great
things going on. It's a little discouraging that (the Department of Education) is revisiting
something from two years ago when we've worked so hard as a community."

Subject: Follow-up from AFT
James:
First, it was good to meet you at the Campaign for America's Future event on the
proposed gainful employment regulations. As I said there, AFT really appreciates the
thoughtful approach the Department is taking on these issues and we will be submitting
comments in support of the regulations (although we, like others, hope to see the regs
strengthened a bit) .
As I indicated, we would very much like to come over to the Department to meet with you,
hear what your priorities and concerns are more generally for higher education and also
share with you some of the issues and work that we are doing at AFT. Is there someone
in particular in your office we should contact to schedule such a meeting?
Also, on an issue that might be a bit more pressing, a delegation of AFT leaders and staff
met with Undersecretary Kanter and after that we spoke with Hal Plotkin about our
interest in recommending a person for this fall's summit on community colleges and
talking further about some concerns we hope will be addressed at the summit. Hal put us
in touch with Amy Laitinen. We have sent Amy some information and a recommendation
for a participant, but would be interested in hearing if you have any further information on
the summit.
Thanks for your time-I am sure that your August has been busy with all of the attention
the proposed regulations are getting.
Looking forward to speaking with you further,
Craig

Secretariat meeting at One Dupont -- Kellogg room on 8th floor
Dear James,
Next week, on Thursday September 23rd, Dr. Ochoa is meeting with the Secretariat
members from noon to 1 :30 at ACE. We would love to have you join us if your schedule
is free. The meeting is meant to be a meet and greet session for the CEOs and Dr.
Ochoa, and an opportunity to have some informal discussion between Dr. Ochoa and the
CEO's about his policy goals for higher education in the coming years.
I told Francine Picoult that we would be happy to have other Department officials
accompany Dr. Ochoa, and that we would invite you, Dan Madzelan, David Bergeron and
Andre Lewis. Just so you know, Terry will be heading out of town that day so he won't be
there.
If you think you could join us, please let me know and I will make sure that Ellen Babby
(our VP in charge of the Secretariat and other matters) has your information for
introduction purposes.
Thanks very much, and thanks again for the briefing on the reg package. I know the
group can be difficult, especially when they get in the weeds, but I do think you and the
team provided helpful clarifications.
Best. Anne

AACC breakfast
Dear James:
AACC is hosti ng a pre-summit breakfast for CC CEOs, faculty, and students in the Kellogg
Conference Room on the eighth floor of the National Center for Higher Education at One
Dupont Circle. I have been trying to convince ACCT to join us, but at this point it appears
that ACCT wants to keep the trustees at the hotel. I know that it would be difficult for
you and your colleagues at the Department to be in two places, but if you can drop by to
say hello, we would appreciate it. We will start our breakfast at 8:15, so it would be
possible for you and the other department officials to cover both breakfasts. We will
bus the attendees from One Dupont to the White House at 10:15.
If you and the others can drop by, please let me know so I can let our buildi ng security
know.

DearColleagues-
I'm writing to invite you to a Swearing-In Ceremony for four Senate-confirmed members
of ED's senior staff. The ceremony will be held this Wednesday, September 29 from
4-Spm in LBJ's Barnard Auditorium. We are asking political appointees to stand in the
back during the ceremony if possible, as we expect external invitees and career staff to
fill the auditorium's seating capacity.
Although these colleagues have been integral members of our team for some time now,
this event is a ceremonial opportunity for them to celebrate their appointment with their
family, friends, staff, and you. The honorees are:
• Brenda Dann-Messier, Assistant Secretary of the Office of Vocational and Adult
Education;
• Eduardo Ochoa, Assistant Secretary, Office of Postsecondary Education;
• Alexa Posny, Assistant Secretary for the Office of Special Education and
Rehabilitative Services; and
• Lynnae Ruttledge, Commissioner of the Rehabilitation Services Administration.
All the Best,

James,
You are cordially invited to speak before the annual AJCU Federal Relations Network
Conference on Thursday, September 30, 2010. This marks the 13th year for this
conference, which we tie into CEF, the day before. I am also chairing the annual CEF
Legislative Conference and Gala this year once again.
We have approximately 30 to 35 folks that attend from our 28 Jesuit campuses across the
U.S. Our program runs from 8:30a.m. till 4:00 p.m. in the Congressional Meeting Room
South in the Capitol Visitors Center. Last year, Bob Shireman joined us and brought a
team from OPE, Dan Madzalin, David Bergeron, et al. I would leave that up to you if you
would like to do so, we would welcome their input as well. Ideally, if you could donate an
hour of your time for this conference, that would be terrific.
Ideally, this represents an opportunity for you to get to know our Jesuit representatives,
which will be Government relations vice-presidents, financial aid directors, counsels, and
perhaps a President or two. Discussion is all about higher education policy on budget
issues such as Pel! grants, how are we going to find the money for FY11 Pell and future
complications. Also talking about campus-based aid struggles for the future, including
Perkins Loan efforts. And, focusing on recent regulations and laying them out to our folks,
following questions and answers would be terrific. I am sure there may be other initiatives
by the Administration that you might want to also focus on.
James, I hope you can join us. You and I have worked together for so many years, this
would be an opportunity to listen to the Jesuit representatives and could also bounce
ideas proposed, should you want to do so. If your calendar is open, may I suggest a time
of 11 :00 a.m.? I am totally flexible on time right now, just wanted to suggest a time.
Look forward to hearing back from you. And, on another note, I hope you will be taking
time off. I am out from the 14th till the end of the month in Nantucket. Will have my
blackberry, however.
Best,
Cyndy

conference, which we tie into CEF, the day before. I am also chairing the annual CEF
Legislative Conference and Gala this year once again.
We have approximately 30 to 35 folks that attend from our 28 Jesuit campuses across the
U.S. Our program runs from 8:30a.m. till 4:00 p.m. in the Congressional Meeting Room
South in the Capitol Visitors Center. Last year, Bob Shireman joined us and brought a
team from OPE, Dan Madzalin, David Bergeron, et al. I would leave that up to you if you
would like to do so, we would welcome their input as well. Ideally, if you could donate an
hour of your time for this conference, that would be terrific.
Ideally, this represents an opportunity for you to get to know our Jesuit representatives,
which will be Government relations vice-presidents, financial aid directors, counsels, and
perhaps a President or two. Discussion is all about higher education policy on budget
issues such as Pell grants, how are we going to find the money for FY11 Pell and future
complications. Also talking about campus-based aid struggles for the future, including
Perkins Loan efforts. And, focusing on recent regulations and laying them out to our folks,
following questions and answers would be terrific. I am sure there may be other initiatives
by the Administration that you might want to also focus on.
James, l hope you can join us. You and l have worked together for so many years, this
would be an opportunity to listen to the Jesuit representatives and could also bounce
ideas proposed, should you want to do so. If your calendar is open, may l suggest a time
of 11:00 a.m.? I am totally flexible on time right now, just wanted to suggest a time.
Look forward to hearing back from you. And, on another note, I hope you wil l be taking
time off. I am out from the 14th till the end of the month in Nantucket. Will have my
blackberry, however.
Best,
Cyndy

Conference Room on the eighth floor of the National Center for Higher Education at One
Dupont Circle. I have been trying to convince ACCT to join us, but at this point it appears
that ACCT wants to keep the trustees at the hotel. I know that it would be difficult for
you and your colleagues at the Department to be in two places, but if you can drop by to
say hello, we would appreciate it. We will start our breakfast at 8:15, so it would be
possible for you and the other department officials to cover both breakfasts. We will
bus the attendees from One Dupont to the White House at 10:15.
If you and the others can drop by, please let me know so I can let our building security

Dear Colleagues,
Stephen Cornell, one of Arne's former college professors, has graciously offered to give a
presentation called "The Native American Difference and the Difference it Makes in
Education" here at the Department on October 20th from 9:00-10:00am. He will talk
about the dramatic transformation of Indian Country over the last three decades, what
this has meant for tribal relationships with the federal government, and its effects on
tribal aspirations and approaches to education. Stephen is currently a Faculty Associate
with the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy, an
organization which assists in the building of capable Native nations that can effectively
pursue and ultimately realize their own political, economic, and community development
objectives. He will be available to answer questions following his presentation. I hope
you will be able to join us.
Thanks,
Charlie

They seemed to think it was a big problem for their grant programs. I would be surprised
if states are running need-based grant programs that go up to those levels but maybe
Virginia and Texas do, I don' t know. Anyway I look forward to those conversations.
Leigh is also scheduling dozens of GE meetings so she's a little snowed under. I' ll check
on the briefing.

This response is a good warning. The fact is that EFCs go down most for people with high
incomes- who are not likely to be getting grant aid anyway so it doesn't matter.
We are going to focus on talking about formulas could be tweaked so that lower EFCs
don' t necessarily mean more grant aid.
It would be good to discuss all of this stuff without before we write anything.

grant study. There will be two other panelists- Pam Fowler, Executive Director of
Financial Aid at the U. of Michigan and NASFAA Chair-Elect, and Cheryl Maplethorpe,
Director of Financial Aid, Minnesota Office of Higher Education.
Session 405: Friday, October 29, 9:15AM to 10:30 AM
Title: The Simpler FAFSA: Implications for Equity
Description: To reduce the complexity of the federal aid system and thereby
increase college participation, the Obama administration has simplified the application
process and has proposed removing all but a handful of income questions, as well as
asset information, from the FAFSA. The College Board has partnered with several states
to model the impact of proposed changes on the distribution of state grants. The
collaboration has considered: what these changes mean for the equitable and efficient
dist ribution of need-based grant funds by states and institutions; who will be helped and
who will be hurt by the reduction in eligibility data; and what can be done to minimize
negat ive consequences. Participants in this session will examine the preliminary results
of the study, will discuss national, state, and institutional policy considerations and
implications, and will develop strategies to preserve equity in the awarding of need-
based grants.
Please let me know by next Monday, if possible, if you are interested and
available. If you have questions, please give me a call. If you' re not available, could you
suggest an alternate? (Dan Madzellan?)
Thanks for your consideration of our request.
