      Weekly Report on COMMUNITY COLLEGES

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our July 28

      addresses refer to the online versions of the articles.


      *  COLLEGES FEAST AT THE PORK BARREL: Members of Congress doled
         out a record $1.044-billion in earmarked spending that

         from last year. Plus: A comprehensive list of Congressional
         earmarks for higher education: A29

      *  PEOPLESOFT TRIES AGAIN: Two colleges, one of them a two-year
         institution, have agreed to test project-management techniques

         administrators who have found its products difficult and
         costly to install: A57
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i47/47a05701.htm

      *  WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD: As colleges come to rival small
         cities in size and complexity, they need good managers more
         than ever, write Marvin Lazerson, Ursula Wagener, and Larry
         Moneta, professors of higher education at the University of
         Pennsylvania: A72
