Campus Security Authority Training

The Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (“Clery Act”) was enacted in memory of Jeanne Clery, a student who was raped and murdered by a fellow student in her Lehigh University residence hall in 1986.

This complex federal law administered by the U.S. Department of Education requires institutions of higher education participating in federal financial aid programs to maintain and disclose campus crime data and security information.

In some cases, “Clery” crimes (especially sexual assaults) may not be reported to police or security, but instead are told to other campus representatives such as faculty and staff. The Clery Act requires that institutions collect reports of crime from people holding positions that Clery considers to be “Campus Security Authorities” (CSA).

This page contains a training module for Grand Valley State University designated Campus Security Authorities. On an annual basis, the University reviews and updates the list of individuals who hold positions designated as CSAs under the requirements of the Clery Act and the Department of Public Safety oversees annual training for these individuals.
