Though I applaud any effort to support students as they attempt to achieve a college diploma, as a long-time faculty member at the University of Baltimore, the proposed plan to provide financial incentives to students toward the end of their college careers confuses and concerns me ( "UB plans free final semester for 4-year grads," March 19). A low graduation rate is certainly influenced by economic issues, and there are students for whom any additional financial support will be meaningful.

Advocates of a limited bachelor's degree program at Harford Community College took their argument to Annapolis, where they encountered a buzz saw of opposition from four-year education institutions seeking to defend their turf. "This is clearly about turf. It's about encroachment," Claudia E. Chiesi, president of Harford Community College, told members of the House Ways and Means Committee at a hearing Wednesday about a bill that would allow the school to offer three bachelor's degree programs.

HARFORD Community College wants to become the first community college in Maryland to offer four-year degree programs. If they can only get a foot in the door, officials promise, they won't aspire to be Harford University, with a panoply of bachelor's degree programs. But if Harford gets what it wants, the state's 15 other community colleges surely will seek similar authority, and eventually these schools will want the door wide open. It's that middle name - community - that distinguishes the state's two-year colleges from their four-year brethren.
