The Committee is established to advise the Secretary of Education in assisting two-year degree-granting institutions of higher education in meeting the completion or graduation rate disclosure requirements outlined in section 485 of the HEA, as amended. Specifically, the Committee shall develop recommendations regarding the accurate calculation and reporting of completion or graduation rates of entering certificate/degree-seeking, full-time, undergraduate students by two-year degree granting institutions of higher education. The Committee may also recommend additional or alternative measures of student success that are comparable alternatives to the completion or graduation rates of entering degree-seeking full-time undergraduate students and that consider the mission and role of two-year degree granting higher education institutions. These recommendations shall be provided to the Secretary no later than 18 months after the first meeting of the Committee.
The agenda for the Committee's first meeting will include a welcome by Department officials followed by a roundtable discussion focusing on the strategies for accomplishing its mission as stated in its charter. The agenda will also include brief panel presentations about current efforts in the field regarding improving completion or graduation rates and alternative measures of student success.
