Methodology

To determine the safest colleges in each state, we analyzed Uniform Crime Report and Campus Safety and Security data for schools that meet the following criteria:

  • 5,000+ students enrolled
  • Two- or four-year degrees offered
  • Public, private, or non-profit institution

For the three crime factors, the rate reported has been compared against the population per 1,000 people within the city limits. The lower the rate, the lower the number of crimes reported in that category:

  • Violent crimes per 1,000 people
  • Property crimes per 1,000 people
  • Hate and VAWA (crimes against women) crimes per 1,000 people

Interesting Findings

  • The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Elon University each scored a low violent crime rate. UNC-Chapel Hill scored a 0.9 per 1,000 people, and EU scored a 0.7.
  • Not only did Elon University score low for violent crimes, but it also reported low property crime at 6.7.
  • Our number one school, North Carolina Central University, scored the lowest in all three crime categories, with the highest being a property crime rating of 38.1 per 1,000 people.
  • They may be known as the Blue Devils, but Duke University takes student safety seriously with programs that include Travel Risk Management and Sexual Misconduct guidelines.
