      FREE HIGHLIGHTS:

      * FLIP-FLOP IN FLORIDA The state's community-college presidents
      are part of a coalition that is opposing Amendment 11, a
      ballot measure that, if passed, would undo sweeping changes
      in university governance adopted over the past two years by
      Florida's Republican governor and Legislature.

      -- HIGHER-EDUCATION REFERENDUMS: Ballots in more than a
      dozen states will carry measures of interest to community
      colleges.
      --> http://chronicle.com/free/v49/i10/10a02201.htm?cct

      * FOR-PROFIT, FOR REAL The University of Phoenix's online
      program is gaining more students and more accolades for its
      business and teaching successes.

      SELECT ARTICLES (for Chronicle subscribers; see below for a
      special subscription offer):

      * ENROLLMENT SURGE: Many colleges are overwhelmed by a wave of
      new students, with public universities and community colleges
      especially feeling the crush, as students seek affordable
      higher education.
      --> http://chronicle.com/weekly/v49/i10/10a03301.htm?cct

      * A SHARP UPWARD CURVE: Tuition at public two-year colleges
      jumped by 7.9 percent this fall, up from 5.8 percent the year
      before. And tuition at private two-year colleges rose 7.5
      percent, up from 5.8 percent last year, according to a
      College Board survey.
      --> http://chronicle.com/weekly/v49/i10/10a03501.htm?cct

      * TOTAL QUALITY ACCREDITATION: A new approach to setting
      standards for colleges follows principles from manufacturing
      and industry. Colorado Mountain College, a seven-campus
      community college, is one of about 70 institutions using an
      alternative accreditation process offered by the North
      Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
      --> http://chronicle.com/weekly/v49/i10/10a02501.htm?cct

      * FULL DISCLOSURE: Well under half of all colleges comply with
      a federal law that requires them to report statistics on
      rapes and sexual assaults, a study shows.
      --> http://chronicle.com/weekly/v49/i10/10a03302.htm?cct

      * PEER REVIEW: Santa Fe Community College places its president
      on leave.
      --> http://chronicle.com/weekly/v49/i10/10a00801.htm?cct

      * DANGEROUS CHOICES: Favoring minority candidates in faculty
      hiring is both legally and ethically ill-considered, writes
      Roger Clegg, general counsel of the Center for Equal
      Opportunity.
