CHICAGO, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In this year's list, StateUniversity.com introduced a new ranking system for the safest schools by the following categories: Safest Overall Schools (Four-Year or Above), Safest Public State Universities, Safest Private Colleges and Universities, Safest Community Colleges, and Safest Vocational, Tech. and Career Colleges
To compile the list, StateUniversity.com utilized Cleary and FBI data to analyze 1,585 colleges and universities to assign safety ratings. The assigned ratings are based on the following criteria: the number of weapon occurrences, drugs, burglary, vehicle theft, arson, larceny, robbery, forcible and non-forcible rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, and aggravated assault.
"We're very excited to announce the changes that we've implemented. COVID worries can sometimes make people complacent of traditional crime," said Dominik Mazur, CEO of StateUniversity.com. "Colleges and universities are ranked for campus safety on a scale that accounts for severity of a crime as well as frequency of crime. Campus crime statistics are accounted per 100 students."

- Kent State University at Geauga - Burton, OH
