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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our July 27
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  BOOMING SUMMER SESSIONS: For students seeking early
         graduation, as well as colleges squeezed for space by growing
         enrollments, the programs increasingly make sense.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46a03301.htm

      *  ECONOMIES OF SCALE: Eight community colleges are collaborating
         to cut their information-technology expenses.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46a02901.htm

      *  REACHING THE INUIT: Nunavut, the newest Canadian territory,
         faces tough challenges to its goal of expanding higher
         education in a society that until recently relied on
         subsistence living.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46a03801.htm

      *  THEORY INTO PRACTICE: Full-time faculty members should run the
         show. But adjuncts who teach as a sideline are more convincing
         in demonstrating the real value of education, writes Bruce
         E.R. Thompson, a librarian at California State University at
         San Marcos and an adjunct professor of philosophy at Cuyamaca
         College.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46b01601.htm

      *  HOT TYPE: A new book by Phil Pastras, a professor at Pasadena
         City College, revisits the life and legacy of the great jazz
         pianist Jelly Roll Morton.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46a01801.htm

      *  NAKED LUNCH: Baltimore International College had egg on its
         face when it accidentally mailed a recruitment brochure for
         its culinary-arts program that featured a baker in a bikini.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46a00602.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  OFFICE TO LET: The Bush administration has yet to fill the
         Education Department's top higher-education post. Some
         educators wonder if the White House cares about college
         issues.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46a01901.htm

      *  CHANGING THE RULES: A House of Representatives subcommittee
         approved a bill to make it easier for some distance-education
         programs to offer federal aid.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i46/46a02802.htm
