USA Today
Bullying comes in all forms but is usually thought of as a K-12 issue that ceases to exist once students head off to college. This misconception is one that could be harming many college students, according to Brian Van Brunt, President of the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association and author of the book Ending Campus Violence: New Approaches to Prevention.

3 Hidden Costs For International Students At U.S. Colleges
U.S. News & World Report
International students preparing to attend college in the U.S. cannot avoid considering their budget. But there's more to consider than your future tuition, room and board or textbook fees. You already know these kinds of costs and probably have a plan to get scholarships to cover them at best, or you're at least aware of them. Instead, I would like to tell you about the following college costs that many international students only realize they'll have to account for once they set foot in the U.S.

Refugees Need Access To Higher Education
University World News
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees' 2013 Global Trends Report indicated that the number of refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced people worldwide had, for the first time in the post-World War II era, exceeded 50 million. This massive increase was driven both by the war in Syria, which by the end of 2013 had forced 2.5 million people to leave their countries as refugees, and by new displacement in Africa due to new conflicts, notably in the Central African Republic and South Sudan.

Ebola: What Colleges Do To Prepare For Outbreaks
Bloomberg Businessweek
The latest instance of Ebola-related alarm came Thursday, Oct. 16, at Yale New Haven Hospital, where a doctoral student at the university was treated for Ebola-like symptoms. Preliminary tests indicated the student wasn't infected with the deadly virus, according to a local NBC affiliate, but the scare raised the specter that Ebola could spread through classrooms and dorms. Since colleges and universities are characterized by intimate contact among students, it stands to reason that infectious outbreaks loom as a possible threat. The American College Health Association has made six suggestions for college health centers looking for guidance on how to prepare, including making sure the campus's emergency response plan is up to date, having a way to communicate with students and parents if any Ebola cases are confirmed, and planning for a quarantine site.

Colleges Are Already Screwing Up New Campus Safety Law That Includes Domestic Violence
The Huffington Post
Colleges have to count more types of incidents as hate crimes and disclose the number of dating violence, domestic violence and stalking reports they receive each year, under final safety law regulations unveiled Friday by the U.S. Department of Education. However, the department had already asked schools to list those new categories in the annual crime reports released this year. At least 23 institutions (listed below) failed to include them, though the Education Department will not say whether colleges will face fines for not complying with those new rules that were already in place.
