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

  • The average violent crime rate per 1,000 people for the top ten safest colleges in Texas is 2.26—far lower than most state’s campuses.
  • Weatherford College and Midland College didn’t report any Hate or VAWA crimes in 2019.
  • Prairie View A&M University has a property crime rate per 1,000 people that’s 79% below average.
  • West Texas A&M University ranks well in campus safety overall. The school has a violent crime rate per 1,000 people that’s 60% lower than average, a property crimes rate per 1,000 people that’s 52% lower than average, and a hate and VAWA rate per 1,000 people that’s 88% lower than average.
  • It’s no wonder Texas Woman’s University is one of the safest colleges in Texas. TWU’s public safety department is accredited through the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (which only 1.5% of campus law enforcement agencies can say).
