Campus Security Authority Reporting

Reporting a Crime

The University recognizes victims or witnesses of a crime may choose to be or are unable to, make such report. We also recognize that some people may refer to other individuals to report a crime. The Clery Act recognizes certain University officials as “Campus Security Authorities (CSA).” An Official is defined as any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution.” Campus Security Authorities can report a crime using the following form.

 Campus Security Authorities (CSA.
