OPINION
August 27, 2003 | Catharine Stimpson, Catharine Stimpson is dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science at New York University.
The Sept. 11 attacks rightly marshaled America against terrorism. Unfortunately, however, the government's zeal has created one of the most serious conflicts between security and freedom in our nation's history -- and its effects will be evident on college campuses, among other places, this fall. As a New York University educator, I am unusually anxious about the start of this academic year.

Nearly three years ago, some skeptics doubted Community College Chancellor Philip Westin when he plunked down $300,000 to start an experimental program increasing the number of international students. But the decision to transfer Oxnard College President Elise Schneider to a new job as the program's provost and pay her more than $100,000 annually to travel around the globe has proved a sound investment for the Ventura County Community College District. Last year, the program brought in $1.

As a young student in Singapore, Sharon Lai decided she'd like to attend college in the United States. Although she didn't have a specific school in mind, she had an idea of where to look. "I had heard that Boston was a university town," Sharon says, explaining that she focused on schools in the area. Today, she's a sophomore at Boston University. Sulochana Vivekananthan, a BU senior from Sri Lanka, attended Wesley College in Dover, Del., for her freshman year.

Proving that student-run fashion shows don't have to be a walk through gaucheville, exchange students attending Chapman University in Orange presented "An Evening in France" that successfully provided a sampling of culture typically associated with that country: food and fashion. Following a champagne reception Saturday, about 200 students, relatives and friends--including dignitaries from the French Consulate--sat down to dinner.

A Westwood organization has brought the world to the home of Doris Gellerd Lee. For more than 30 years, Lee has played host to students from at least 10 countries at her Los Angeles home as part of the International Student Center at UCLA's Friendship Family Program. "I've learned about the rich cultures and educations of students from China, Peru, Spain. . . . [The students] come from all over," Lee said.

As I read Dina Khayat's Aug. 18 Opinion column, "Passport to a Future," my mind was nodding in agreement. The Bush administration and Congress should take her eloquent arguments in support of foreign students studying at U.S. universities to heart. "Education is one of the most effective tools in the fight against terrorism." It would be shortsighted to place restrictions on foreign student visas. As a former Peace Corps volunteer, I have strong positive feelings about exchange programs.

For the last decade, USC has enrolled the largest number of international students of any college in the country: 8,615 last year. The Los Angeles university worked hard to achieve that - recruiting students from China, India and South Korea, among 100 countries in all, and providing services for the foreign students once they get here. Now campus officials are faced with the slayings this week of two graduate engineering students from China in a shooting about a mile off campus.
