TUSCALOOSA, Ala.--Stillman College is the only historically black college 
and the only college from Alabama of 20 institutions of higher learning 
recently selected to participate in the American Commitments in a Diverse 
Democracy Program, according to college officials. The project builds upon 
the ongoing American Commitments Curriculum and Faculty Development 
Project, which began in November 1993 and is supported through grants from 
the Ford Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The 
Commitments initiative seeks to help colleges and universities define 
curricular approaches to U.S. diversity as a fundamental dimension of their 
educational responsibilities. 
DANVILLE, Ky.--The 1996 "Fiske Guide to Colleges" has named Centre College 
to a list of 42 public and private institutions that provide the "best 
possible education at the most reasonable cost." Compiled by Edward B. 
Fiske, a former "New York Times" education editor, the guide made its 
selections from more than 3,000 colleges and universities located in the 
U.S. The value rating is a new feature in Fiske's annual guide, which 
continues its tradition of offering candid descriptions of 300 of the "best 
and most interesting colleges around the country." Centre is the only 
Kentucky college included in the Fiske value rankings this year. The 
University of Kentucky is included in the 300 profiles.
