Campus Security Authority (CSA)

What is a CSA?

A CSA is defined as “an official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings.”  Princeton has identified our officials who meet this criteria and has informed them of their responsibilities.

As a CSA, you have responsibility to report allegations of crimes made in good faith to the Department of Public Safety by using Campus Security Authority Form.

Faculty & Staff Reporting Obligations

As a Princeton University faculty or staff member, you have certain reporting obligations with respect to emergencies, sexual misconduct, and other potentially illegal activity.  The Reporting Potentially Illegal Activity and Sexual Misconduct Training Video is intended to help you understand your reporting responsibilities; specifically, it will teach you what to report, how to report, and to whom to report.  

The Reporting Potentially Illegal Activity and Sex Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct policies described in the video apply to on-campus activities and off-campus Princeton-related activities, such as domestic and international travel to conferences, study abroad programs, and research sites.  

These FAQ's are intended to provide supplemental information; please review them after viewing the video.
