The Clery Act requires all institutions to collect crime reports from a variety of individuals and organizations that Clery considers to be Campus Security Authorities (CSAs). The primary responsibility of these officials is:
“to report allegations made in good faith to the reporting structure established by the institution.” This class will define who CSA's are, what their responsibility is once a crime has been reported to them, and the liability involved.
Goals and Target Audience:
Full compliance is a campus-wide effort, and should concern all members of the campus community! The goal of this course is to provide the campus community with an awareness of crimes that may be happening, and make them aware of the mandates set forth in the Clery Act. The targeted audience includes: officials of the institution who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings; individuals responsible for security (includes Housing RD’s, RA’s, Complex Coordinators, and Building Proctors); individuals or offices designated to receive crime reports; officials with significant responsibility for student and campus activities (including group advisors and coaches); Human Resources; and Student Affairs Professionals (Deans, Greek Affairs).
