Criminal Victimization of International Students: A National Conversation on Effective Prevention Practices

National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS), 2018

The National Center for Campus Public Safety convened a daylong forum to facilitate thoughtful conversations about preventing criminal victimization of international students attending U.S. institutions of higher education. Participants represented campuses across the country and included university and college chiefs of police and international student administrators. Representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security also participated in the conversations, giving guidance on resources, funding, and training available at a federal level. Forum participants agreed that while reducing criminal victimization of international students is a top priority, several unique challenges are keeping more effective prevention practices from taking root on campuses across the country. Key takeaways and conclusions from the forum discussions, including potential recommendations for preventing criminal victimization, constitute the principal findings of this report.
