      The Chronicle of Higher Education's
      Weekly Report on COMMUNITY COLLEGES
      _________________________________________________________________

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our March 23
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  'ONE BOARD PER CAMPUS': As individual public institutions
         seek more autonomy, a growing number of states are breaking
         up systemwide governance and giving colleges their own
         boards, for better or worse.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a02401.htm

      *  MERGERS ON THE RISE: More colleges are deciding that they
         will fare better by joining with other institutions, but the
         consolidations are difficult to negotiate and to manage.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a02601.htm

      *  VIRGINIA SQUEEZE: Public colleges in the state will have
         to halt work on multimillion-dollar construction projects,
         and faculty and staff members will forgo pay increases,
         under the budget announced last week by the governor.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a02202.htm

      *  NO SUNSHINE: The Nevada Supreme Court ruled that community-
         college presidents are not public officers, and that as a
         result, state officials may interview candidates for the
         positions behind closed doors.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a02203.htm

      *  BALANCING THE BOOKS: Wallace's Bookstores, which operates
         stores on 74 four-year- and two-year-college campuses,
         declared bankruptcy.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a03101.htm

      *  COMMITTEE COMPROMISE: Members of a House education panel
         have agreed to alter its new structure for overseeing
         college programs, satisfying Democrats who said the initial
         change had slighted institutions with large minority
         enrollments.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a02002.htm

      *  CAREER NETWORK: In a first-person feature on our Web site,
         Ellen Levine Bremen chronicles her successful search for
         a tenure-track job at a community college.

      _________________________________________________________________
      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  DEGREE FACTORIES: State regulators struggle to clamp down
         on unaccredited "diploma mills," which offer degrees and
         certificates for online instruction, mostly via the Web.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a03401.htm

      *  LOBBYIST WATCH: The United States Student Association staged
         a rally at the Capitol to protest the extent of President
         Bush's proposed tax cut.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a02003.htm

      *  MONEY FOR EDUCATION: A U.S. Senate panel passed legislation
         to provide more than $20-billion of education-related tax
         benefits, and agreed to hold hearings to examine tax proposals
         that would encourage greater giving to colleges.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a02201.htm

      *  CLICK AND LISTEN: A British company is offering recorded
         online lectures by a dozen renowned scholars.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i28/28a03403.htm

      *  PROFIT AND LAWS: Argosy Education Group, a Chicago company,
         is buying John Marshall Law School, Western State University
         College of Law, and Connecting Link, which offers continuing-
         education courses for teachers.
