Campus safety remains a national concern as the number of crimes and tragedies
occurring at universities across the U.S. increases each year. In fact, the
National Center for Education Statistics report there are as many as 27,000 criminal incidents reported to police
and security agencies each year against persons and property on campus
at public and private post-secondary institutions.
As a new year has started up for many Indiana college students, we encourage
parents to talk to their children about making good choices and taking
safety precautions seriously. Parents and students also need to keep college
administrators accountable in upholding their campus as an environment
where all students can have a safe and successful school year.
Several laws have been set into place to help college students stay safe
on campus. These rules have also helped direct universities to prevent
crime and address other serious safety issues.
Keeping a realistic and educated, open conversation with your child about
campus policies and your concerns will help college aged students think
about safety and how to prevent injuries and accidents through making
smart choices. These open conversations can also help ease a parent’s
mind that their child will be just fine.
