CSA Training

In accordance with the Clery Act, all university “campus security authorities” (CSAs) – those officials
who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities – must report certain crimes to
University Police.

CSAs are also required to report whether the Clery Act crimes, or any other criminal offense such as larceny, simple assault, ethnic intimidation, and destruction, damage, or vandalism of property, were motivated by bias related to race, gender or gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin or disability.

Given the nature of these reporting obligations, NC State recognizes that it would be unrealistic to expect all CSAs to be able to differentiate between similar crimes without significant legal and/or law enforcement training (e.g. knowing the difference between aggravated assault and simple assault or burglary and larceny) or even when a crime is motivated by bias. Therefore, the university believes that the most reasonable and effective way to manage NC State’s federal reporting requirement is to designate University Police as the central data collection unit for all crimes.

If someone reveals to a CSA that they have been the victim or perpetrator of, or witness to, any incident that might involve a crime (reportable or otherwise), CSAs must immediately contact University Police at (919) 515-3000. NC State’s CSAs complete annual training so that they are aware of their Clery reporting obligations. This training is delivered in two formats: in-person presentations facilitated jointly by University Police and the Office of General Counsel. CSAs who need to complete the CSA training should visit this link. Completion of in-person or online CSA training is tracked and reported to University Police by a responsible administrator within each University division or unit.
