The Association of American Universities (AAU) and Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU) this week released a document entitled “University Actions to Address Concerns about Security Threats and Undue Foreign Government Influence on Campus.” 

It’s their response to increased concerns regarding intellectual property theft by foreign students, researchers and professors. The document provides recommendations for how U.S. universities can exercise additional care in vetting visitors and guests as well as ensure that data and IP are adequately protected. The full document can be found here.
