In Case You Missed It: 100 Most Dangerous Campuses in New England

Saturday, March 30, 2013

 

"In Case You Missed It," GoLocal's Saturday feature, puts the week's top stories in one easy place for you to review and read. Check out what dominated the news cycle this week in Central Massachusetts and get all the details with these easy links.

How safe--or unsafe--are the college campuses in New England?

The question is a challenging--and controversial--one to answer. 

Crimes ranging from property crimes of burglary, car theft and even arson, to violent crimes including aggravated assault, robbery, sexual offenses, manslaughter and murder occur on the region's campuses and since 1990 must be reported by each educational institution to the US Department of Education, as mandated by the Clery Act.

For more background on the Clery Act and controveries regarding crime reporting, go here.

Those numbers, broken down by campus, by year, are all available to the public. What is known as the Clery database formed the basis for GoLocal's first ever look at the incidence of crimes as reported by each campus in New England, and an assessment of crime rates based on each college's enrollment, to form a statistically comparable basis for ranking.
