Investigation of Study Abroad Programs Widens

An investigation of college study abroad programs by the New York attorney general’s office has expanded to include 15 colleges and universities, among them Harvard, Brown and Columbia, a senior lawyer in the office says.

Investigators for Andrew M. Cuomo, the attorney general, are asking about who at each college is responsible for approving contracts related to study abroad, how each institution selects the programs it approves and whether it has received anything of value from a study abroad provider, among other issues, said the lawyer and representatives of some of the colleges that received the subpoenas and requests.
