Campus Security Authorities (CSA)

A campus security authority (CSA) is:

  • A campus police department or a campus security department of an institution.
  • Any individual or individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security department (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. 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.

All CSAs at U.Va. will be notified of this designation in writing by the Assistant Vice President for Clery Compliance.  Along with this notification, CSAs are required to attend training to understand their reporting obligations  under federal law and University policy. 

Campus Security Authority training is coordinated by the Assistant Vice President for Clery Compliance.  Please contact Gabe Gates, Assistant Vice President for Clery Compliance for all training inquiries and requests.  Additional Clery Act training from the Department of Education is also available at http://www2.ed.gov/campus-crime/HTML/cc_on/Contents.html.
