The OPE Campus Security Statistics Web Site
GRADE LEVEL: Advanced, Professional, Parents

The OPE Campus Security Statistics Web site is brought to you by the Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education. The site provides insights to the safety of campuses across the nation.
The site is fairly bare bones, typical of most search tools.
The database can be searched by geographic area, state, type of institution, instructional program, institution name, or number of students enrolled.
The Web site offers statistics on criminal offenses for more than 6,000 colleges and universities in the United States. Potential college students and their parents may find this site helpful in determining which schools provide a safe learning environment. Users can search for a college based on its location, program, size, or degree offerings either alone or in combination. The more criteria you specify, the smaller the number of colleges that will fit your criteria. Once you've found some colleges of interest, you can obtain important and understandable security information on them.
