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

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

      TOP STORIES:

      *  A REVOLUTION IN ACADEMIC ADVISING: Richland College, a
         two-year institution in Texas, turned around a deficient
         program with innovations like a CD-ROM-based orientation, with
         mandatory attendance for most students.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i04/04a04701.htm

      *  TUITION ON THE RISE: After a decade of slow growth, the cost
         of attending a public college jumped this year in a number of
         states.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i04/04a03001.htm

      *  RED SCARE: A student's objection led Mesa Community College to
         abandon cold-war-era language in a loyalty oath required of
         Arizona's public employees.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i04/04a04702.htm

      *  AFFIRMATIVE-ACTION APPEAL: The University of Georgia will
         challenge a federal judge's ruling that struck down its
         admissions policy.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i04/04a03101.htm

      *  STUDYING HIGH-SCHOOL SENIORS: The Education Department has
         appointed a commission to look into ways to improve the
         students' transition to college, vocational training, or a
         career.

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  ASSESSMENT AND INSTITUTIONAL ACCOUNTABILITY are not the same
         thing, writes Jane V. Wellman, a senior associate at the
         Institute for Higher Education Policy, in a critique of
         "learning outcomes."
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i04/04b02001.htm

      *  THE RICHEST YOUNG AMERICANS didn't necessarily attend top
         colleges -- or any college -- according to a survey by
         "Fortune" magazine. One went to Santa Rosa Junior College.
