Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) and the Clery Act

Faculty or Staff Advisors to Student Clubs/Organizations are designated as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs)

Those who are designated as a Campus Security Authority (CSA) by the District will be asked to participate in annual training related to the responsibilities of a CSA. A Campus Security Authority is an individual who, by virtue of their college responsibilities and under the Clery Act, is designated to receive and report criminal incidents that they are made aware of to the Campus Police Department to be included and published in the college’s Annual Security Report. This training will be online, followed by a brief mandatory questionnaire to determine if a CSA is aware of a criminal incident to report to campus police in any given year.
