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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our August 3
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  COMMUNITY-COLLEGE CLOUT: Increased lobbying by the
         institutions is yielding payoffs in legislatures and Congress,
         and significantly more federal earmarks.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i47/47a02301.htm

      *  OPENING THE DOORS: The University of California's Board of
         Regents approved a plan that guarantees admission to some
         high-school students if they attend community college first.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i47/47a02401.htm

      *  A CHALLENGE TO COLLEGES: A top Education Department official
         urged financial-aid officers to press students to apply for
         aid online. But officials at some community colleges and other
         institutions that serve disadvantaged students said the
         department should not push them too hard.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i47/47a02601.htm

      *  "LAME-FOOT THE KING": Sophocles' "Oedipus Rex" had taught
         itself for so many years that when it didn't, a professor had
         forgotten how to teach it. Bob Blaisdell, an assistant
         professor of English at Kingsborough Community College of the
         City University of New York, explains.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i47/47b01201.htm

      *  LOVE THE IBOOK, NOT THE COMPANY: Apple's latest laptop
         computer may have many admirers, but few believe its maker
         will ever regain prominence in the higher-education market.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i47/47a03301.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  BROADENING ENROLLMENT: The American Council on Education is
         beginning a new effort to encourage needy minority students to
         attend and graduate from college.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i47/47a02303.htm

      *  A GUIDE, NOT A BLUEPRINT: The authors of a report card on
         states' higher-education services urged lawmakers not to make
         policy based on its grades.
