Campus Security Authority

According to federal law, specifically, "The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act of 1990" (renamed the Jeanne Clery Act), colleges are 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."

A Campus Security Authority is defined by the Clery Act "as an official of the institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including but not limited to, student housing, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings.

Due to the nature of certain positions at CSE, you may be identified as a Campus Security Authority. As such, you will be expected to report crimes for inclusion in the CSE Annual Security Report prepared for the U.S Department of Education.

Due to the law's complex reporting requirements, if your position at CSE is determined to be a Campus Security Authority, you will be contacted about a mandatory training session that will explain your role and expectations so that the College can be in compliance with the Clery Act.

Questions can be referred to the Security Manager at x4290 or the Assistant Dean of Students at x4201.
