Benedictine College is a small community numbering approximately 2,100 persons including resident students, administrators, faculty and staff.  It is situated on the bluffs of the Missouri River in the city of Atchison, Kansas, which has a population of about 11,000.  As part of this larger community, the College shares many of the same interests and concerns. 

 

Benedictine College recognizes the importance for an institution of higher learning to develop and maintain a safe and secure environment in which the academic and social pursuits of its members can be fully realized. The College has the utmost concern for the success of each student and encourages students to be active participants in the exercise of personal safety. While Benedictine College strives to provide a safe environment, criminal incidents and other emergencies may occur despite reasonable efforts.

 

Benedictine College has been fortunate in experiencing a very small number of crimes.  Nevertheless, the College understands the concern of most parents about the safety of their sons and daughters on a college campus away from home and accepts its share of responsibility for the safety and security of all its students and employees.
