Campus security authority - csa
According to federal law, specifically The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of
1990 (recently re-named the Clery Act), University Police Department is required to report "statistics concerning the occurrence of certain criminal offenses reported to the local police agency or any official of the institution who is defined as a "Campus Security Authority."
The definition of "Campus Security Authority," according the federal law, is as follows: "An official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings." For example, a dean of students who oversees student housing, a student center, or student extra curricular activities, has significant responsibility for student and campus activities. Similarly, a director of athletics, team coach, and faculty advisor to a student group also has significant responsibility for student and campus activities. A .single teaching faculty member is unlikely to have significant responsibility for student and campus activities, except when serving as an advisor to a student group. A physician in a campus health center or a counselor in a counseling center whose only responsibility is to provide care to students are unlikely to have significant responsibility for student and campus activities. Also, clerical staff are unlikely to have significant responsibility for student and campus activities.
The criminal offenses that we are required to report are murder/non-negligent manslaughter, negligent manslaughter, sex offenses (forcible and non-forcible), robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, liquor law violations, drug violations and/or illegal weapons possession. We are required to report offenses that occur on-campus, in residence facilities, in non campus property and on public property.
