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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our
      February 8 issue.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  A SUCCESSFUL FIRST YEAR: The Army's huge distance-education
         program, in which 23 four-year and two-year colleges are now
         participating, is attracting strong interest from soldiers at the
         same time that it is causing clashes between the military and
         academic cultures.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a03301.htm

      *  STUDIES BEHIND BARS: College programs for prisoners have won
         new support, as research has shown that they reduce rates of
         recidivism.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a02601.htm

      *  GENDER EQUITY IN CALIFORNIA: Most of the state's 108 two-year
         colleges have failed to comply with Title IX in their sports
         programs, according to a news report.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a04001.htm

      *  PAYING FOR PELL: The White House plans to ask Congress to
         slash earmarks as a way of financing the grants.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a02503.htm

      *  NO PUNISHMENT: A former technician at a Georgia community
         college reached a deal to avoid jail time for using
         distributed-computing technology to study encryption.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a03303.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  BOOKMARK: Distance education threatens the privacy of students
         and professors because online class discussions can be
         monitored in ways that are impossible in traditional
         classrooms, a prominent critic of technology argues in a new
         book.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a03401.htm

      *  LOGGING IN: What makes a good course Web site? asks Charles F.
         Kerns, education-technology manager for academic computing at
         Stanford University, who is helping to design a
         course-management system that will be free for any college to
         use.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a03601.htm

      *  DEVIL IN THE DETAILS? College lobbyists are urging officials
         of the Immigration and Naturalization Service to share more
         information about a national database being developed to track
         foreign students in the United States.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a02203.htm

      *  SERVING YOUR COUNTRY: In his State of the Union address,
         President Bush proposed a major expansion of AmeriCorps.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i22/22a02501.htm

      *  AVERTING A CRISIS: The House of Representatives has finally
         approved a bill that would fix a problem in the
         guaranteed-student-loan program and eventually reduce the cost
         of borrowing for students.
