Biographical / Historical

The Title I of the Higher Education Act was enacted in 1965 in an effort to provide more resources to post-secondary institutions across the country. Financial Resources were to be allocated to post-secondary institutions to use for research, scholarships, faculty development, and more. This record group details a number of the projects at Maine academic institutions that were funded under Title I. The University of Maine had a Title I Program Coordinator and there was Maine State Advisory Council to coordinate efforts across the state.
