      The Chronicle of Higher Education's
      Weekly Report on COMMUNITY COLLEGES
      _________________________________________________________________

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our September
      15 issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  FOMENTING A REVOLUTION? Washington State legislators have high
         hopes for the new Cascadia Community College, whose unorthodox
         methodology and curriculum are organized around "learning
         outcomes."
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a02901.htm

      *  PLURALISM AMONG PRESIDENTS: More women and minority-group
         members are being hired as campus leaders, but white men still
         hold most of the top spots.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a03101.htm

      *  THE GORE AGENDA: Some student-aid experts say the vice
         president wants to help mainly the middle class, but many of
         them still think he'd be better for colleges than George W.
         Bush would.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a02401.htm

      *  IMPACT ON ONLINE LEARNING: The Education Department will hold
         meetings to discuss altering regulations that require students
         to be enrolled 12 hours per week to receive federal financial
         aid.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a02803.htm

      *  HELP FOR DISTANCE LEARNING: The Education Department is
         seeking experimental online programs for a financial-aid
         project.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a04003.htm

      *  HOW SELECTIVE COLLEGES FEED INEQUALITY: Robert B. Reich, a
         professor of social and economic policy at Brandeis University
         and former secretary of labor, explains why students from the
         lowest-income families must go to college, and why they don't.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03b00701.htm

      *  OPTING OUT: About 25 public universities have declined to take
         part in a new program to help students from the District of
         Columbia, saying the program's rules are cumbersome and
         intrusive.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a02801.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  MORE STATES ARE CREATING online high schools, frequently with
         help from virtual universities.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a04004.htm

      *  LEADERS OF CALIFORNIA'S LATEST EFFORT to promote online
         learning are using the catalog of the now-defunct California
         Virtual University.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i03/03a03801.htm

      *  RICHARD S. JARVIS, the first chancellor of the United States
         Open University, says it is challenging to adapt material from
         its British parent for American students.
