Historians briefed Members of Congress and their staffs on the history of the Higher Education Act of 1965 signed by President Lyndon Johnson, which offered federal money to colleges and universities and financial assistance to students. They traced the origins of the act beginning with the push for science research as well as the funding of the GI Bill in the 1940s. They also explored congressional support for the measure, changes and re-authorizations made to the act, and the long-term impact of the federal government’s involvement in higher learning. The National History Center hosted this event. close
