U.S. scholars drawn to conflict zones stoke college safety debate
Associated Press - 07/28/2015
At Boston’s Northeastern University, officials wonder why there are warnings for countries such as Colombia but not Tunisia, where 38 were killed in a June attack at a beach resort.
“To a casual observer, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense,” said Brian Gibson, director of the Global Experience Office at Northeastern, which hires a firm to provide global safety advice.
Levine, of Tufts, said he isn’t brave; he just knows Ukraine and is confident the area where he’s headed is safe.
