What is a Campus Security Authority?
A "Campus Security Authority" (CSA) is an official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student activities and programing, faculty and staff adviser to student organizations, faculty and staff hosting trips, 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. If someone has significant responsibility for students and campus activities, s/he is a CSA.
If a crime is reported to a CSA, it must be reported to Campus Police, regardless of whether the reporting party wants to file a report with law enforcement or press charges.
