My colleague Jason Jones here at the Pope Center, a master of public administration student at NC State, recently took a close look at crime statistics on university campuses in North Carolina and nationally. He found that crime on campus isn’t the problem it is often made out to be, although crime rates in neighborhoods near universities are often significantly higher. Eve Carson, the former UNC student body president, Jason reminds us, was killed in a neighborhood near UNC and never showed up as a statistic on campus crime reports.
