      Weekly Report on COMMUNITY COLLEGES

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our January 5
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  LIKELY SLOWDOWN IN STATE SPENDING: As legislatures convene,
         officials at both two- and four-year colleges are bracing for
         the effects of the cooling of the national economy,
         particularly in the dot-com sector.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i17/17a02401.htm

      *  WHAT THEY EARN: A survey by the Modern Language Association
         gives part-timers a chance to compare paychecks -- which range
         from $450 per course at one community college to $7,200 at a
         top university.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i17/17a01501.htm

      *  THE BUSH AGENDA: College officials and political observers,
         while optimistic, take a wait-and-see approach to the
         president-elect's program for higher education.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i17/17a03401.htm

      *  JURY AWARD: New Mexico State University was ordered to pay
         $241,000 to a professor who was fired from its Dona Ana Branch
         Community College after she had filed a sex-discrimination
         complaint.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i17/17a01402.htm
