Spies on Campus Pose Threat to Academia

NEW YORK — It’s a typical scene at college campuses across the country — students with their noses buried in books, engaged in the pursuit of knowledge and hoping to one day make their mark on the world.

It’s not the first place one would imagine finding government spies, but investigative reporter Dan Golden said you would be surprised.

“There’s an awful lot more international students, international professors at American universities. Some of them are here to gather information for their countries, scientific secrets or cultivate sources,” said Golden, author of “Spy Schools.”
