Arkansas Tech University has been named the 2016 safest public university campus in the State of Arkansas by BackgroundChecks.org.
The staff at BackgroundChecks.org combined data from recent Department of Education Reports, natural language analysis, social media sentiment analysis and their own research to create the list of safest universities and colleges in Arkansas.
BackgroundChecks.org is a public safety focused organization committed to increasing public safety, community involvement, transparent government and education.
"It's a true testament to a great administration, strong leadership, student and community involvement", said Jessica Pierce, a BackgroundChecks.org public safety analyst. "In a world full of bad news, it's great to have something positive for students, administration, and faculty, and it's something to be proud of."
