Every Friday, the leader of the world's largest system of higher education fires up his computer and taps out an e-mail message to campus leaders across the state. Sometimes he's whimsical, reporting on his 9-mile bike commute or concocting imaginary adventures about the bureaucracy he would battle if he requisitioned a bicycle. But more often, Thomas J.

The chancellor of California's community colleges will step down in January, leaving the top post as the 108 colleges in the system face climbing enrollments, as well as the prospect of student fee increases and deep budget cuts. Thomas J. Nussbaum, who will retire from the job he has held since 1996, said he was making his plans known because he wanted to give the Community College board "plenty of time to conduct a search, find a successor and have things in place before I leave."

A sweeping decentralization plan for the Los Angeles Community College District was stalled Wednesday because the chancellor of the California Community College system told the board of trustees it had violated state law. But despite yielding on the issue, two trustees lashed out at State Chancellor Tom Nussbaum, saying he was wrong to conclude the district acted outside the law by failing to consult with the District Academic Senate, the faculty governing body, before settling on a reform plan.

Saying that financial losses at the Los Angeles Community College District "seem to have been reversed," California Community Colleges Chancellor Thomas J. Nussbaum held a joint news conference with district officials Wednesday to applaud projections of an $8.3-million surplus in the current year's budget. "We can't declare the district off the watch list. . . . But this is a very important beginning," Nussbaum said, speaking at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.

Sidney W. Brossman, the first chancellor of California's community college system, has died of cancer in San Diego. He was 76. In 1968, Brossman became head of the new California Community Colleges. He served until 1977, helping guide the system as it split off from the state Department of Education and came under the control of a new Board of Governors. During his tenure, the number of colleges expanded from 82 to 104 and enrollment climbed from 500,000 to 1.3 million.

The University of California announced Tuesday that it has admitted a record number of community college transfer students for the fall term, and has increased the proportion within that group of underrepresented minority students. University-wide, the proportion of Latino, African American and American Indian students within the transfer group rose to 18.5%, from 17.8% last year, according to annual figures released Tuesday.

When the chancellor of the California Community College system sends an e-mail into cyberspace each Friday to more than 100 colleagues, one always finds its way to the computer of district chancellor Philip Westin. Thomas J. Nussbaum is in charge of the big picture--106 colleges in 71 districts--while Westin oversees Ventura County's three-college district. Although still a challenge, communicating with that many district leaders is made slightly easier through weekly e-mail updates.

The University of California announced Wednesday that it has accepted a record number of community college transfer students for the fall, the fourth straight year of such increases. University-wide, the proportion of Latino, African American and American Indian students within the transfer group stayed virtually unchanged from last year, at 17.8%, according to annual figures released Wednesday. But the percentage was up slightly at UC Berkeley and UCLA, the two most competitive campuses.
