      FREE HIGHLIGHTS:
        
      *  BOOMING GROWTH Honors programs are increasingly popular at
         community colleges. A separate article explores how more
         regional public institutions are opening honors colleges to
         raise their profiles and attract better students.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/free/v48/i38/38a02001.htm?cct

      *  NO TIME CLOCK Online courses have redefined the relationship
         between faculty members and their students, turning the notion
         of office hours on its head. You can join a discussion of this
         topic, in Colloquy.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/free/v48/i38/38a03101.htm?cct

      *  JOB-RETRAINING FUNDS An amendment attached to a foreign-trade
         bill that is before the U.S. Senate would provide federal
         funds for community colleges that help retrain laid-off
         workers.
          --> SEE http://chronicle.com/free/2002/05/2002052305n.htm?cct

      *  NETWORKING 101 You may not think you have a network of
         contacts to rely on in your academic job search, but you do.

      *  STEP BACKWARD? College leaders worry that Greg Woods's
         departure from the U.S. Education Department may threaten
         efforts to modernize the delivery of student aid.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i38/38a02201.htm?cct

      *  NOT GOOD ENOUGH: A U.S. Justice Department report calls the
         government's system for tracking foreign students inadequate
         and says that a new, computerized database is an insufficient
         advance and that it won't be ready by the January 30 deadline.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i38/38a02304.htm?cct

      *  MATTER OF NATIONAL SECURITY: A U.S. Senate bill would
         eliminate a Defense Department program that helps pay for
         American undergraduates to study other languages and cultures
         in an effort to build a base of experts; college lobbyists
         call such a cutback shortsighted in the wake of September 11.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i38/38a02302.htm?cct

      *  SHAREWARE: Colleges in North Dakota will pool resources with
         the state government to buy a consolidated information system
         that could cost more than $30-million.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v48/i38/38a03301.htm?cct

      *  STICKS AND STONES: A posting on the U.S. Education
         Department's Web site raised Congressional hackles when it
         accused lawmakers of "betraying students" by not embracing   
         Bush-administration proposals to fix a student-aid shortfall.
