Imposing a duty on colleges to protect students against crime on campus is logical for the same reason that it is logical to impose a duty on lessors to protect their lessees against crime in their homes: IHEs and lessors alike are best positioned to provide such security.
Ultimately, using a single-factor foreseeability analysis to impose a duty on nonclinicians to prevent suicide results in one of two negative consequences: either it produces the anomaly that IHEs are singled out as protectors against foreseeable harm, while those to whom the harm is more clearly foreseeable are deemed not to owe a duty; or it produces a generally-applicable foreseeability rule that runs counter to tort law's entire treatment of affirmative duties and the modern conception of the role of an IHE.
