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

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

      TOP STORIES:

      *  THE MERIT OF SCHOLARSHIPS: Do merit-based awards created by
         many states have hidden costs? While the price of some
         programs skyrockets, need-based aid is starved for funds, and
         many recipients require remediation.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i19/19a02001.htm

      *  TURMOIL IN FLORIDA: The chancellor of the state-university
         system quit as an overhaul of higher-education governance in
         the state moved forward.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i19/19a02501.htm

      *  "AN EMPTY SPOT IN THE CATALOG": At the American Historical
         Association's annual meeting, would-be professors despair of
         finding a job at a two- or four-year college. But if they get
         one, they fear it won't be because of their ideas but for
         their willingness to teach many classes.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i19/19a01001.htm

      *  ECONOMICS RESEARCH: New educational strategies may allow for a
         narrowing of the education gap between white and minority
         students, according to papers presented at the annual meeting
         of the American Economic Association.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/daily/2001/01/2001010803n.htm

      *  GIVING AGAIN: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will help
         needy high-school students in Washington State go to college.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i19/19a02602.htm

      *  RULE CHANGE SOUGHT: Participants in an Education Department
         meeting called for the end of an aid policy that hurts
         distance education.

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  STATES' COLLEGE-SAVINGS PLANS: The middle class is benefiting
         from bonds, prepaid tuition, and trusts, but the most needy
         students may be left out, writes Andrew P. Roth, vice
         president of enrollment and information services at Mercyhurst
         College.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i19/19b01301.htm

      *  LABOR PAINS: Graduate assistants' efforts to organize unions
         only reflect universities' transformation into commercial
         enterprises, write Kate Bronfenbrenner, director of labor
         education research at Cornell University's School of
         Industrial and Labor Relations, and Tom Juravich, director of
         the Labor Relations and Research Center at the University of
         Massachusetts at Amherst.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i19/19b02401.htm

      *  GOT SLOGANS? It's time to spruce up those musty old college
         pitches. George Felton, a professor of English at the Columbus
         College of Art and Design, offers some dos and don'ts.
