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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our July 13
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  FAMILY BUSINESS: When Southwestern Michigan College hired the
         board chairman's son as president, some people saw a potential
         for conflicts of interest.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a02401.htm

      *  CHANGING CHANNELS: Telecourses continue to grow in popularity
         -- despite the rise of online education -- and the Internet
         may provide opportunities for more growth and improvement.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a02901.htm

         *  POWER OF TRADITION: The Public Broadcasting Service is not
            worried that online education will force changes in the
            network's telecourse programs.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a03102.htm

         *  DODGING A BULLET: Despite earlier fears about Federal
            Communications Commission policy, educators now appear
            unlikely to lose their broadcast frequencies.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a03101.htm

         *  NEW TECHNOLOGY: High-definition television could improve
            telecourses -- for universities with the right budget and
            network capacity.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a03201.htm

      *  TEACHING AND TECHNOLOGY: From cyber critiques of math homework
         to virtual surgery, digital technology in the classroom will
         transform higher education, write Frank Newman and Jamie
         Scurry, respectively the director and the coordinator of the
         Futures Project: Policy for Higher Education in a Changing
         World.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44b00701.htm

      *  HAZY FRONTIER: Sure, there's a place for new media in higher
         education. But we're only beginning to explore how technology
         will affect teaching, writes T. Mills Kelly, an assistant
         professor of history at George Mason University.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44b00901.htm

      *  BATTLING OVER INTEREST RATES: Banks say a planned reduction
         would raise their loan costs prohibitively, but advocates for
         students say a delay would hurt borrowers.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a02001.htm

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  STEAL THIS ESSAY: To some students, other people's writing,
         like pizza deliveries, may now be irresistibly convenient,
         writes Ellen Laird, an instructor of English at Hudson Valley
         Community College.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44b00501.htm

      *  CHASING DREAMS: Three profiles feature members of the first
         class of the Gates Millennium Scholars program, which gives
         grants to low-income minority students.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a03401.htm

      *  TRANSITION WATCH: A longtime critic of Greg Woods, chief
         operating officer of the U.S. Education Department's Office
         of Student Financial Assistance, is joining the department's
         leadership team.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a02003.htm

      *  "FACULTY DRAFT": An unusual approach to personnel at Franklin
         University, which has ties to scores of community colleges,
         has infuriated many professors.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i44/44a01201.htm

      *  OUR BOND-RATING UPDATE for June 2001 notes that the Tarrant
         County College District saw its credit rating upgraded.
