Weekly Snapshot Archives - 2016/05

May 25, 2016

In this issue:

  • Emerging Issues in Managing International Programs at IHEs: Each year, hundreds of thousands of students travel overseas, studying for academic credit from US institutions of higher education (IHEs). While study abroad is the most common form of global program, higher education populations also travel abroad for athletic competitions, recruiting trips, tours, ministry programs, service-learning programs, research, global health activities, internships, and conferences, as well as collaborations with international institutions and governments.
  • Updates on Federal Drone Policies: In April and May, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) clarified and updated policies on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), also known as drones. As we reported in one of our three previous Weekly Snapshot issues that covered drones, anyone owning a drone is now required to register it with the FAA's UAS registry before they fly outdoors, if it meets certain weight criteria.

  • Recognizing First Responders: This week we celebrate professionals who have dedicated their lives to providing safety and lifesaving services to others. National Police Week and National Emergency Medical Services Week run concurrently this year, and it 's critical we take time to recognize the selfless work these professionals provide our communities on a daily basis.
  • PEACE OUTside Campus: The Lindsey M. Bonistall Foundation: According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics' (BJS) National Crime Victimization Survey, 1995-2000, the number of off-campus violent victimizations of college students was 14 times greater than the number of on-campus victimizations. Specifically, for students living on campus, approximately 85% of their violent victimizations occurred off campus. For students living off-campus, about 95% of their violent victimizations occurred off campus.
