International students in US worried about gun violence: study

August 16, 2019

A quarter of international students studying in the US say that they worry about gun violence at their institution, while 37% say they worry about such violence in the local community, according to a new survey. Students attending urban institutions were most likely to express these concerns, with the highest levels of reported concern coming from students from Asia and from the Middle East/North Africa. Despite these concerns, however, 88% of respondents said they felt safe from physical harm or acts of violence at their institutions, while 79% said they felt physically safe within their local community.
