Campus Security Authority Training

Mandatory annual training for designated CSA’s

In person Campus Security Authority (CSA) training will be offered each semester. However if you are unable to attend an in person training session, then you can complete the training here online.

Campus Security Authority (CSA) is a term used in The Clery Act to describe someone who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities.  The regulations that govern The Clery Act (34 CFR 668.46) define a CSA as:

  • 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, such as an individual who is responsible for monitoring 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.

If you are unsure if you are considered a CSA and need to take this training, please contact the Office of Social Equity at (724) 938-4014 or via email at
