The Clery Act requires institutions to gather and publish crime data from multiple sources, including Campus Security Authorities (CSAs), to ensure that current and prospective students, as well as employees, know about the dangers on campus.
A CSA, as defined by the U.S. Department of Education, is any university official who has significant responsibility for students and campus activities. There are four types of CSAs: campus police departments, campus security individuals, campus designated individuals, and any officials with a significant responsibility for students or campus activities.
If you are a licensed mental health counselor, designated victim advocate, a pastoral counselor, or working within the scope of your license or religious assignment you don’t have to report.
When in doubt – always report! Contact your campus security and fill out a CSA incident form. To learn more about CSAs, please click here.
