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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our
      March 15 issue.
      _________________________________________________________________

      TOP STORIES:

      *  A BAD FIRST YEAR: California's ambitious new aid program
         misses its goals and shortchanges older students.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i27/27a02301.htm
        
      *  A GOOD DAY AT THE POLLS: California community colleges were
         big winners in last week's election, with 13 of 14 districts
         winning the bond measures they had placed on the ballot. The
         bonds will provide the districts with $2.3-billion to repair
         old buildings, expand others, and build new facilities to
         accommodate swelling enrollments at many of the campuses.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/daily/2002/03/2002030704n.htm
        
      *  BRAND LOYALTY: When a college outsources functions that are
         ostensibly nonacademic, it should be careful to preserve what
         made the institution special to begin with, writes David L.
         Kirp, a professor of public policy at the University of
         California at Berkeley.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i27/27b01301.htm
        
      *  PERFORMANCE FROM AFAR: A study has found that students who
         took an economics course online didn't do as well as students
         who took the same course in a classroom.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i27/27a03802.htm

      *  REFERENDUM CRITICIZED: Florida's attorney general is
         challenging a ballot initiative intended to resurrect the old
         governance structure of the state university system.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i27/27a02302.htm

      *  SPEAKING IN TONGUES: Colleges hope that September 11 will spur

         instruction.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i27/27a02601.htm
