Campus Security Authorities are adovcates, responding and supporting students who report criminal activity.

As a CSA, you have a legal obligation to report any violations of the Clery Act as communicated to you. Use the reporting form to alert the appropriate authorities promptly.
What are CSA's?
Campus Security Authorities or CSA's, are used for any employees who are designated to report crimes to Public Safety. CSA’s must collect and report any information about possible criminal activity to Campus Safety promptly.
Once you become aware that a Sexual Offense or VAWA Offense may have happened, you must report to the Title IX Coordinator immediately at (716) 829-7812 or firstname.lastname@example.org (in addition to sending the report to Campus Safety).
- Explain that you were approached by the student—even if the student decided not to make an official report or sought counseling.
- The Title IX Coordinator will follow-up with the student.
Discussions with Confidential Resources (CR’s) will NOT result in a report to a Title IX coordinator
