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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our June 15
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  HIRING BOOM: While much of higher education is retrenching,
         many community colleges are looking for new faculty members,
         especially those with a commitment to the colleges' mission.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a00801.htm

      *  DIRECT LENDING'S LAST STAND? The program remains popular with
         many prominent colleges, but a lawsuit and changing political
         fortunes may doom it.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a01801.htm

      *  TECHNICAL COLLEGES PROPOSED: Utah lawmakers will vote this
         month on whether to create a 10-campus college of applied
         technology that would rely heavily on competency exams.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a02403.htm

      *  UNDER FIRE: A South Carolina law that ties all state aid for
         public colleges to their performance has not improved them as
         much as its sponsors had hoped, a new report charges.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a02402.htm

      *  ENCOURAGING HISPANIC ENROLLMENT: Local businesses and colleges
         should help develop outreach programs to raise the students'
         college-going rate, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund urges.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a02003.htm

      *  BOND-RATING UPDATE: Two community colleges are among
         institutions that had their creditworthiness upgraded in May.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a02701.htm

      *  ARE WE ABLE? The Americans With Disabilities Act has brought
         us a long way, but colleges must do more to remove the
         obstacles that disabled people face, writes I. King Jordan,
         the president of Gallaudet University.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40b01401.htm

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  PENDING: The New York State Assembly is considering a bill
         that would create a program to provide needy students with
         grants to study abroad.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a02401.htm

      *  LOAN RATE TO DIP: The interest rate on federal student loans
         will drop by 2.2 percentage points in July, to reach its
         lowest mark in recent years.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a02001.htm

      *  AVOIDING LAWSUITS: The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case
         that deals with the immunity of public colleges and other
         state agencies to claims in federal court.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i40/40a02201.htm

      *  BAD CHOICES: More students are obtaining multiple credit cards
         and graduating with large sums of consumer debt, and
         Congressional legislation may make it more difficult for them
         to recover.
