Campus Violence

With bullying, mental health and wellness issues, overwhelming amounts of stressors, and tragic precedents, the fear of campus violence is not unfounded.  According the the FBI, between 2000 and 2018 there were 57 active shooter events in educational environments; 15 of which occurred at institutions of higher education.  Additionally, the National Center for Education Statics notes that “In 2016, a total of 28,400 criminal incidents against persons and property on campuses at postsecondary institutions were reported to police and security agencies.”  In an effort to help prevent and mitigate campus violence, this section addresses various forms of campus violence by providing information including statistics, handouts, and other resources.
