Campus Security Authority

What is a Campus Security Authority (CSA)?


A Campus Security Authority, or CSA, is a Clery Act term defined by the Department of Education that generally encompasses four different groups of individuals and organizations often found on college campuses.   

These groups include: 

Employees of a campus police department or campus security department of an institution, such as CUPD or Auraria PD. 

Any individual or individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security (e.g., an individual who is responsible for monitoring the entrance into institutional property). 

Any individual or organization specified in an institution's statement of campus security policy as an individual or organization to which students and employees should report criminal offenses. 

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.
