There are an estimated one million international students on college campuses in the United States. This influx has grown significantly and brings new challenges for police officials. Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) is one of the largest Community Colleges in the United States and has a diverse student population. With thousands of international students at its campuses, NOVA has experienced significant issues and has learned lessons in areas such as: tailoring student outreach to international students to protect them (which includes cultural and constitutional concerns); student immigration fraud involving businesses; and terrorists enrolled at the college.

Session Sneak Peek

Learning Objective 1: Attendees will learn some basic steps they can take to look for signs of immigration fraud and to prevent unknown, potentially dangerous, persons from being at their schools.   

Learning Objective 2: Attendees will understand how specific outreach efforts to international students, with an emphasis on prevention of violations of laws and polices, may serve both the student and the college.

Learning Objective 3: Identify and address cultural differences that may undermine the trust of international students toward police. Identify national, state and school processes that address student concerns.
