Student Suicide Rate At MIT Appears To Be Higher Than US Average.

The Boston Globe (3/17, Rocheleau) reports that “the rate of student suicide at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology continues to be notably higher than the national average for college campuses.” Over the past 10 years, “the university’s student suicide rate has been 10.2 per 100,000 students, according to a Globe review of public records as well as university and media reports,” compared to the US “national average for college campuses” of “roughly between 6.5 and 7.5 suicides per 100,000 students.”
