Campus Security Authority training launched for selected departments, new hires

As part of Case Western Reserve University’s ongoing efforts to be compliant with the federal Campus Crimes Reporting and Statistics Act, also known as the Clery Act, the Division of Public Safety will launch an expanded training program for university staff and faculty members whose job positions have been designated as Campus Security Authority (CSA) positions.

Per the Clery Act, a CSA is any official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities and safety; examples include campus police officers, student affairs employees, and athletic coaches and trainers, among others.

Current staff members whose job descriptions meet the definition of a CSA will receive invitations to view a brief online training module offered through Canvas on the definition and responsibilities of being a CSA.

Supervisors of new staff members who are hired into positions designated as CSAs will receive communication asking them to have these employees take the training within 30 days of their hire.

The Division of Public Safety appreciates everyone’s assistance in helping the university maintain and improve its compliance with the Clery Act. Questions can be directed to the Clery Compliance Office at 216.368.1243.
