Deltha Q. Colvin, assistant vice president for Campus Life and University Relations and director of TRIO programs at Wichita State University, was recently appointed to a federal education committee.
The committee will develop proposed discretionary grant program regulations.
The HEOA was signed into law by President George W. Bush in August 2008. Colvin will serve as a primary nonfederal negotiator for the Title IV Discretionary Grant programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended.
These programs include the TRIO programs and Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP), among other programs.
WSU hosts nine TRIO programs and the statewide GEAR UP program.
An individual had to be nominated to participate and the U.S. Department of Education selected primary and alternate negotiators for the committee.
"I am excited because the negotiated rulemaking committee will impact the regulations required of the discretionary grants programs for the next 10 years," said Colvin.
More information about the request for negotiated rulemaking can be obtained from the U.S. Department of Education Web site at http://www.ed.gov.
