Abstract:

This study presents a first look at the phenomenon of homicides which occur on institutions of higher education. Using data from the Department of Education, Supplementary Homicide Reports and archived newspaper articles one hundred and twenty-four (124) incidents between 1998 and 2003 were located. Analysis on the characteristics of the institutions, as well as the characteristics of the victim’s and offenders was conducted. Additionally each homicide incident was categorized into a homicide typology including predatory, avenger, relationship-based, and death pursuant to a fight. The vast majority of victims were male undergraduate students. Disproportionately these homicides occurred at historically black college and university or where the minority student rate was higher than the national average.
