This voluntary project by Greg Huntington (UC alumnus, UC parent, retired P&G innovation leader, True Joy Acoustics founder) frames reported CRIME patterns occurring around the University of Cincinnati's main campus via www.raidsonline.com database. It also provides a synopsis of leading causes and contributing factors of FIRES that haven taken the lives of college students across the USA since 2000, particularly in off-campus housing. Understanding the nature of these "problems" is prerequisite to defining action plans that can meaningfully improve student welfare while attending college.

There is no substitute for sufficient infrastructure (e.g., lighting, controlled accessibility, code compliance) and trained law/fire enforcement professionals to deter and respond to criminal and fire threats. However, STUDENT attitudes and behaviors play a critical role. The thrust of this presentation is to outline several "Safe College Initiative" ideas that STUDENTS can own to reduce incidents and tragedy. If embraced by senior college leadership, these ideas are relatively straightforward to implement. There is pedigree for their usage and efficacy elsewhere, they are relatively low cost, and they harness student energy and creativity to bring them to life.

The analysis approach, connections and concepts are broadly applicable to other college campuses and student communities. If you are a prospective or existing college student, parent, or leader in any capacity that relates to college student crime/fire risk management, PLEASE share this presentation broadly and STIMULATE ACTION. As with any successful safety program, many "would be victims" will not realize their averted tragedy. But we will know that raising their safety attitudes and behaviors brightened their college experience and lifelong memories.
