      *  SETTING PRIORITIES: Members of the board that governs the
         State University & Community College System of Tennessee,
         trying to make budget cuts, were chagrined to discover that

      *  NEW ATTITUDE: For-profit colleges see a recent nomination as
         the latest sign that the U.S. Education Department is more
         receptive to their ideas.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i11/11a02401.htm

      *  CUTS IN COMPUTING: More college information-technology

      *  SELECTIVE MEMORY: Mayor Thomas M. Menino of Boston came under

      *  IBID., WHERE ART THOU? In proposing to unify citation styles,
         academic specialists risk losing the Three C's: culture,
         control, and confusion, writes M. Garrett Bauman, a professor
         of English at Monroe Community College, in New York.
