The OPE Campus Security Statistics Website
allows you to research criminal offenses that were reported at over 6000 colleges nation wide, (United States). University participation is compulsory.
Of course, what they don't mention is lots of schools, including my alma mater
, refer certain complaints (commonly those dealing with sexual assault) directly to local law enforcement, and keep no official record of the incident with the school itself. I was semi-involved with my school's Women's Resource Center in '98, and I can tell you there were a lot more incidents of sexual assault than listed
on the OPE site.
