      ACADEME TODAY: The Chronicle of Higher Education's
      Daily Report for subscribers

      Good day!

      Here are news bulletins from The Chronicle of Higher Education
      for Monday, March 7.

      * FORTY-TWO PERCENT of community-college students taking
      courses for credit are under the age of 22, up from 32
      percent a decade ago, according to a study being released
      today by the U.S. Department of Education.

      * WORKS BY A 19TH-CENTURY NOVELIST, Emma Dunham Kelley-Hawkins,
      will be removed from future editions of a prominent
      collection of African-American fiction because a Brandeis
      University graduate student has argued persuasively that the
      author was white.

      * THE GOVERNING BOARD of California's South Orange County
      Community College District refused last week to renew a
      study-abroad program in Spain, after one trustee criticized
      Spain's decision to withdraw troops from the U.S.-led
      military campaign in Iraq. The board had previously raised
      questions about the safety of travel in Spain.

      A glance at the winter issue of "World Policy Journal":
      The positive side of globalization

      Globalization has been the target of much criticism from both
      ends of the political spectrum, but it deserves credit for its
      role in alleviating poverty and human suffering, says Peter
      Marber, an adjunct assistant professor of international and
      public affairs at Columbia University.

      There is a "virtuous cycle that connects human progress,
      technology, and globalization," he says, and -- along with mass
      production and excess capital -- global trade is "at the root of
      our modern prosperity."

      "Most people are living longer, healthier, and fuller lives," he
      writes. In developing countries, literacy rates have risen
      sharply in recent years. The middle class is growing fast around
      the globe. And in developed countries, purchasing power has
      grown so much that the total number of hours a person must work
      over a lifetime has plummeted, he says.

      "Globalization is too often cited as creating a variety of human
      miseries such as sweatshop labor, civil war, and corruption --
      as if such ills never existed before 1980," he writes, but
      "behind the negative headlines lies a story of human progress
      and promise that should make even the most pessimistic analysts
      view globalization in an entirely different light."

      An extract from the article, "Globalization and Its Contents,"
      is online at http://www.worldpolicy.org/journal/sum05-1.htm#4
