SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 
Higher Education Act of 1965, 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 April 2012.
    The agenda for the Committee's second meeting will include 
presentations by Committee working groups regarding the topics of 
progression, completion, and alternative measures. The agenda will also 
include Committee member discussions of potential findings and 
recommendations related to these topics.
