Overview

This updated edition examines the advancements that have been made in order to better understand campus crime, especially student victimization, and effectively address security issues. For the sake of continuity with the first edition, the authors maintain the three section divisions: The Legal Context of Campus Crime, The Social Context of Campus Crime, and The Security Context of Campus Crime. Within each section, the contributors — criminologists, political scientists, sociologists, planners, lawyers, security experts, and policy advocates — address, what are believed to be, the most pressing crime and security issues that continue to face post-secondary administrators and their students, faculty, and staff. Each chapter addresses a specific issue, presents original research bearing on the issue, and discusses policy implications for higher education of the research. While some chapters continue to address long-standing topics such as sexual victimization and the role of campus policy departments, many chapters address new and emerging topics such as stalking, computer hacking, and identity theft. The final part of the book suggests future directions for research, programs, and policies. Here, the authors review some of the major questions about campus crime and security that are still in need of answers and relate these to programs and policy decisions by campus administrators. In reading this book, academic researchers and campus officials will be provided with useful information concerning legal issues surrounding campus crime, the extent, level, and nature of student victimization, and security issues that confront institutions of higher education as they move into the new millennium.
