Campus Security Authorities (CSA)

Per the Clery Act, Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are required to report certain criminal incidents to the university.

CSAs include university officials with significant responsibility for student and campus activities, campus safety personnel, and officials to whom students and employees should report criminal incidents. At UCSF all CSAs are identified and trained.

Anyone identified as a CSA at UCSF should report Clery Act crimes using the Campus Security Authority Report Form explained below. 

When a CSA reports an incident, it may be: 

CSA reporting  

CSAs should immediately report all Clery Act crime incidents they receive to the UCSF Clery Act Coordinator: 

All crimes reported to the UCSF Police Department are also received and reviewed by the UCSF Clery Act Coordinator. A report made directly to UCSF Police Department satisfies a CSA's reporting obligations.  

However, if a CSA is unsure whether UCSF PD has been notified of an incident, the CSA should submit a CSA Report Form

CSA referrals and resources for persons reporting Clery Act crimes  

CSAs should refer survivors of violent crime, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking, to the UCSF CARE Advocate and Title IX Officer. Victims may also be referred to the following resources: 

For information about how to use trauma-informed language when speaking with an individual reporting a Clery Act crime, CSAs may contact the UCSF CARE Advocate
