Acknowledgments The authors of this report wish to acknowledge and thank several individuals and organizations that made possible the RIT Survey of Internet and At-Risk Behaviors . Members of the Rochester Regional Cyber Safety and Ethics Initiative (RRCSEI) Executive Board who donated countless hours to help plan Initiative activities and procedures for surveying thousands of students along with hundreds of parents and teachers throughout Monroe County school districts. They are among a small group of educators, government officials and business people who understand the ways in which youth are now threatened and threatening each other online and the implications of this for social and educational reforms needed in society. For their key leadership roles on the Executive Board and organizational support for the RRCSEI and RIT survey, the following individuals are recognized and thanked: Dr. Chris Manaseri, Superintendent of the Brighton Central School District; Jo Anne Antonacci, Deputy Superintendent Monroe-Orleans BOCES 2; Ed Suk, Executive Director of the New York Branch of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children; Michael Miller, President of the Rochester InfraGard Member Alliance; and Allen Scalise, President of the Rochester Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association. We also acknowledge and thank numerous individuals who represented and facilitated their districts' participation in the survey. These people included dozens of other school district superintendents, assistant and deputy superintendents, building principals and other district management team members, information technology service personnel, media enrichment staff, school counselors and teachers. Their combined efforts, and those of all members of the RRCSEI who participated in making this survey possible, have established a basis for Monroe County school districts to consider what can be done to prevent risky online behaviors by area students, and to do so in thoughtful dialog with parents and other members of the community. Thanks are also extended to the 40,079 students and hundreds of parents and school district staff members who actually took the survey. They are thanked for taking the time and trouble to answer many questions, and for trusting RIT to respect their privacy and protect confidential responses to questions often of a very sensitive nature.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
