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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our
      November 2 issue.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  THE UNLIKELY ORGANIZER: After a stint as an adjunct
         professor, Linda Cushing, a card-carrying Republican, went
         from union foe to labor activist. She aims to help part-time
         instructors at community colleges get better pay, job
         security, and institutional respect.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a01601.htm

         *  MORE PART-TIMERS: Colleges are reducing the proportion of
            full-time faculty members, a federal study has found.
            --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a01701.htm

      *  4-LETTER WORDS: The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal by a
         community-college professor suspended over his use of crude
         language in the classroom.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a01802.htm

      *  HARD TIMES AGAIN: The economic downturn and consequent state
         budget cuts have driven two-year public colleges to increase
         tuition by 5.8 percent.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a05201.htm

      *  SAY YOU'RE SORRY: The board chairman of a Michigan community
         college has asked the president of an association of two-year
         colleges to apologize for comments about the father and son at
         the college's helm.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a03502.htm

      *  PENDING: The outlook is iffy in the House of Representatives
         for a bill that would expand the types of college-related
         expenses that people can count when using federal Hope tax
         credits.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a03001.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  MORE BANDWIDTH, PLEASE: As colleges struggle to meet the
         demand for increased capacity on their computer networks, they
         find that the appetite for more is insatiable.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a04301.htm

         *  PRICE CONSCIOUSNESS: In the scramble to increase bandwidth,
            colleges find ways to reduce expenses -- but some costs are
            out of their control.
            --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a04601.htm

         *  STEMMING THE FLOW: Colleges are turning to "bandwidth
            shapers," devices that direct traffic on data networks, to
                throttle needless use.
            --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a04701.htm
        
      *  HELPING THE SURVIVORS: Colleges and other nonprofit
         organizations are creating scholarship programs for the
         families of victims of the recent terrorist attacks.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a03501.htm

      *  GRAND OPENING: Cornell's for-profit distance-education company
         plans a November start for online courses from its School of
         Industrial and Labor Relations.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i10/10a04801.htm
