ABSTRACT

This study uses multiple regressions to examine campus safety and campus security from the perspective of societal crime that occurs external to an institution of higher education versus institutional enrollment. The findings herein showed one statistically significant outcome involving the crime of aggravated assault. Student affairs and other institutional leaders may find this study useful when contemplating enrollment issues and Clery Act reporting requirements.
