      Academe Today's DAILY REPORT
      for subscribers of The Chronicle of Higher Education
      _________________________________________________________________

      Good day!
      Here are news bulletins from The Chronicle of Higher Education for Thursday,
      April 8.
      *

      *
      * COMMUNITY-COLLEGE OFFICIALS who were meeting here Wednesday looked
      into their crystal ball to determine how to position their institutions
      today to gain the maximum advantage 10 years from now. They advocated more
      involvement in their communities, a greater focus on the skills achieved by
      their students, and more aggressive lobbying for increasingly scarce public
      funds.
      * SPRING COMMENCEMENT SPEAKERS have been announced by DePauw, Moorhead
      State, Pacific, and Virginia Commonwealth Universities; Franklin Pierce and
      Westminster Choir Colleges;
      Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; the State University of New York
      at Oswego; and the University of Evansville.
      * > FOR MORE ON THOSE STORIES, go to The Chronicle's
      World-Wide Web site http://chronicle.com

      INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
      * IN HOPES of getting more colleges to buy Microsoft software for
      everyone on campus, Microsoft officials this week revised the company's
      controversial "Campus Agreement" pricing plan.
      * DISTANCE-EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY promises to expand access to learning,
      but it also has the potential to exclude some students, according to a
      report released Wednesday by the College Board.
