‘Most Dangerous Colleges’ FBI, Clery Act Lists Revised
RIVERSIDE, Calif. — After complaints from several universities who appeared on the “25 Most Dangerous Colleges in America” list, the Business Insider, which published the rankings, has revised the standings and released another based on the Clery Act’s disclosures of campus crime.
On Nov. 20, the Business Insider released its list of “most dangerous” schools based on FBI statistics. Both UCLA, which ranked No. 1 on the list, and UC Riverside, ranked No. 24, staunchly opposed the list, stating that Business Insider’s rankings failed to use the federally-mandated Clery Act reports on campus safety.
Business Insider later posted its analysis based on the Department of Education’s Clery Act reports on Nov. 27, noting that nine schools from the list based on FBI data, including UCLA and UC Riverside, also appeared on the Clery Act list, The Press-Enterprise reports. The publication also noted that it had to rearrange both of the lists Thursday, but that it stands by both sets of rankings.
UCLA remains No. 1 “most dangerous school” based on FBI statistics, while Howard University takes the top spot on the Clery Act listings.
