      TOP STORIES:

         decided the only way they could get the kind of technology
         service they need is to hire a company to run the operation.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i23/23a04101.htm

      *  BUDGET PROPOSALS: President Bush proposed a federal budget of
         nearly $2.13-trillion for the 2003 fiscal year. Here is how
         the plan would affect higher education:

            increases.

                enjoy a gain of more than 50 percent.
            --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i23/23a03101.htm

         -- THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT for the Humanities and the National

      *  THUMBS DOWN: The Faculty Senate at the University of Arkansas
         at Fayetteville rejected a plan to extend tenure to professors
         in the entire university system -- including five community
         colleges, none of which currently offers tenure rights.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i23/23a01801.htm

      *  PARTIAL GAINS: The percentage of women leading community
         colleges has increased, but the percentage of minority

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  NEW ENGLAND'S LOST DOMINANCE: The region that was the leader
         in higher education throughout American history now faces real
         competition for the best students and scholars, and the most
         lucrative grants.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i23/23a01001.htm

         -- NEW ENGLAND senators have long led the way in shaping
            federal higher-education policy, but some House Republicans
                are challenging them.
            --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i23/23a01401.htm
        
      *  KAPLAN'S GROWING EMPIRE: The test-preparation company is
         making a big move in for-profit higher education, buying 41
         institutions in less than two years.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i23/23a03601.htm

      *  FASTER AND CHEAPER: Researchers at the Internet2 Technology
         Evaluation Center of Ohio are studying ways of using
         small-dish satellite technology to provide cheap, fast
         Internet connections for distance education.
