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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our
      December 14 issue.


      *  FAST TRACK: A doctoral program at the University of Texas at
         Austin, led by John E. Roueche, has educated a who's who of
         community-college leaders. Some observers question the rigor
         of its curriculum.

      *  WHATEVER IT TAKES: After sending out 150 job applications to
         community colleges, Gretchen Aggertt Weber got one job offer.
         But one was all she needed.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/jobs/2001/12/2001120701c.htm

      *  DESTINATION UNKNOWN: For college students, September 11
         changed everything. The new directions they have taken vary as
         much as they do.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i16/16a03501.htm

      *  NOT SO BAD? Most college graduates who are repaying student
         loans have manageable debt burdens, according to the American
         Council on Education.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i16/16a02201.htm

      *  HASTY MOVE: The paper version of the Free Application for
         Federal Student Aid may soon be a relic, but some
         financial-aid officials think the U.S. Education Department
         is moving away from the form a little too quickly.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i16/16a02103.htm


      *  COMPROMISE ON VISAS: College lobbyists praised a bill that
         would tighten restrictions on foreign students in the United
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i16/16a02301.htm

      *  INTERNATIONAL ACQUISITION: Sylvan Learning Systems bought a
         Paris-based college that prepares students for careers in
         business and management.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i16/16a02902.htm

      *  NETWORK CULTURE: The dot-com frenzy may be over, but its
         effects on how scholars think, not just how we communicate,
         are here to stay, writes Mark C. Taylor, a professor of
         humanities at Williams College.
