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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our August 10
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the


      *  ROLL OUT THE BARREL: Congress provided $1.67-billion in
         earmarks for specific colleges -- including an increasing
         number of two-year institutions -- in 2001 outside the
         standard competitive process, a 60-percent increase over the
         previous year's total.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a02001.htm

         *  THE PORK LIST: A searchable database of academic earmarks
            for 2001 and prior years, plus charts, tables, and graphs
            showing trends.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/stats/pork

      *  CONCERNS ABOUT CONFLICTS: Ivy Tech State College now has four
         Indiana legislators on its payroll.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a04004.htm

      *  CAPITOL VIEWS: State legislators appreciate the economic
         impact of higher education, a survey shows.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a04001.htm

      *  ATTRITION BY DESIGN: Nearly half of all colleges have offered
         early retirement to professors in recent years, a study finds.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a01001.htm

      *  RELIEF IN CALIFORNIA: Public colleges didn't get all of the
         state money they sought, but they were spared budget cuts.
         Two-year colleges received an increase of 6 percent.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a04002.htm

      *  TOUCHE, CONGRESS: Three years after a committee called on
         college officials to account for repeated increases in
         tuition, a study has found that almost every college spends
         more than it charges to educate undergraduates.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a04202.htm

      *  PAYING FOR COLLEGE: The availability of financial aid has
         increased markedly in the past four years, according to the
         U.S. Department of Education.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a05102.htm

      *  SCHOLAR'S LAST STAND: After North Hennepin Community College
         told a historian to remove a poster of Gen. George Custer from
         his office door, the professor filed suit.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a00602.htm


      *  STILL WAITING: The U.S. Department of Education finally
         released a report on aid rules but ducked a key issue for
         distance education.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a04802.htm

      *  CONSOLIDATION WAVE: The for-profit higher-education industry
         is growing larger at the same time that many of its smaller
         operators find that they can't stay in business.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a04201.htm

      *  AFFLUENCE GAP: If the savings rates of the wealthiest colleges
         continue to set the pace, the financial disparity between
         higher education's rich and poor will widen further,
         researchers predict.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a04402.htm

      *  BIG RESPONSE: Some 3,000 financial-aid officers and lenders
         answered Rep. Howard P. (Buck) McKeon's call for examples of
         needless federal requirements on administering student aid.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i48/48a03802.htm

      *  PRICE CLUB: In looking to simplify awards of financial aid,
         are the presidents of a group of private colleges creating a
         cartel? asks Peter Carstensen, a professor of law at the
         University of Wisconsin at Madison.
