Dear Colleague:

Attached is a copy of a letter sent by the American Council on
Education's (ACE) President David Ward (on behalf of 14 higher education
associations) opposing the Notice of Proposed Priority for Upward Bound.

It is important that your institutional President or chief executive
officer send a letter to Mr. Manning that underscores your institution's
opposition to the published priority as well.  The attached letter from
ACE should be very helpful in convincing your institution that
commenting in response to the Notice is very critical.  It is also
important that you work with the offices of your Senators and Member of
Congress to have them go on record as opposing the priority (sample
letter is also attached).   

Should you have any questions or need additional assistance, please
contact Al Phillips or Bob Kearley at 202-347-7430

You may request to opt out of receiving further email from the Council
for Opportunity in Education by sending a message to: Opt Out Of Email
