      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


      *  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

      *  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

         pianist Jelly Roll Morton.

      *  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


      *  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
         --> 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.
