Abstract:

Perceptions of crime and safety affect almost every aspect of community life. For college campuses situated in urban areas, these issues are of grave concern. Like urban residents generally, students attending and residing on urban campuses may find themselves in environments where crime rates are substantially higher than in other more rural or suburban areas. Whether crime rates are higher in these areas or not, it is clear that the fear associated with criminal victimization is higher. In this sense, college student attitudes on urban campuses may more resemble the attitudes of urban community residents in general. Utilizing a random sample of college students and community residents, this research examines fear of crime and safety issues in urban communities.
