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

From there, we analyzed three factors to determine our rankings:

  • 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

  • Four out of the top ten safest colleges in New York have a hate and VAWA crime rate per 1,000 people of zero: Fashion Institute of Technology, Pace University in New York City, CUNY Hunter College, and Yeshiva University.
  • The Fashion Institute of Technology ranks as the safest school in New York. One reason could be the 300 closed-circuit cameras the university placed around campus.
  • Like several campuses, Pace University offers safety and crime prevention training. This includes active shooter training, which is, in this day and age, sadly vital.
  • Columbia University proves that it’s just as serious about safety as it is about its curriculum. The school offers a guard service for all school or sponsored events.
  • New York University offers the Safe NYU app, which connects students to NYC emergency numbers and lets them easily report an incident directly in the app. On top of that, the school also has 24/7 security patrolling the campus, even on holidays.
  • Ithaca College puts a lot of resources into crime prevention training (self-defense workshops, bystander emergency skills workshops, and more), which could be the reason why the school’s violent crime rate per 1,000 people is 49% lower than the state’s top ten average (4.57).
