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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our
      February 22 issue.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  A HOUSE DIVIDED: The partners in Indiana's community-college
         system disagree so sharply over its management that it is on
         the verge of collapse.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i24/24a02202.htm

      *  AID THROUGH ACHIEVEMENT: Most states have adopted financing
         systems that link colleges' appropriations to performance,
         despite little evidence that the plans produce results.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i24/24a02001.htm
        
         -- SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST: Missouri's performance-based
            financing system -- in which the two-year sector conducts
                academic assessments of more than 80 percent of its
                associate-degree recipients -- has been praised, but more
                for its longevity than for any education improvements it
                has spurred. 
            --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i24/24a02101.htm

      *  GETTING CREDIT FOR WORK WITH TECHNOLOGY: Colleges and
         departments, in evaluating professors, are slowly starting to
         consider the creation of Web sites and online teaching
         materials.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i24/24a02501.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  MOVING TO FOR-PROFIT HIGHER EDUCATION: Three liberal-arts
         professors describe why they shifted to nontraditional
         positions at commercial institutions.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i24/24a01001.htm

      *  A BILLION-DOLLAR NICHE: The wealthy Lumina Foundation aims to
         improve student access to college, but its origins in the
         student-loan industry raise suspicions about its motives.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i24/24a02901.htm
        
      *  HARD TO BELIEVE: The new inquisitors on America's campuses
         demand diversity, but only in lock step with their contempt
         for religion, writes Candace de Russy, a trustee of the State
         University of New York.
