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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our October 6
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  BEYOND EUCLID: Some academics, including a professor at Orange
         Coast College, want to draw minority groups to mathematics by
         bringing in non-European methods. Others worry that
         "ethnomathematics" waters down the discipline.

      *  HEALTH-CARE HEADACHES: As medical costs soar, colleges search
         for better deals, and employees worry about their benefits.

      *  THE NEW AGE OF CYBER APPLICANTS: Colleges should be wary of

         applications, writes Neal A. Raisman, president of an
         enrollment- and marketing-consulting firm.
