ABSTRACT
Seventy-six physically-challenged college students responded to a survey through the Office of Disability Services at a medium-sized university in the south. In this exploratory study, they were asked to indicate their general worries while attending classes. The goal of this project was to identify if, and to what extent, they worry about becoming the victim of a crime, and where worries about crime ranks among their other worries. Results provide counter intuitive findings with respect to perceptions of risk and vulnerability to crime based upon physical disability and articulate the need for better coordination of overall services for this group.
