Campus Security Authority – Crime Statistic Reporting


Each year, Washington State University prepares the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Crime Statistics Act using information maintained by the Washington State University Clery Compliance Committee.  The primary function of the Clery Act is to promote campus safety by ensuring that students, parents, employees, and the university community are informed about public safety and crime prevention efforts by WSU.

Community members, students, faculty, and staff should promptly report all crimes and other emergencies directly to WSU PD at (509) 332-2521, or by dialing 911. However, in accordance with the Clery Act, WSU has identified several Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) to whom campus community members can provide information to for reporting purposes.

All WSU Campus Security Authorities are required to take the Clery Act Training available on the Human Resources Training Web Page.

Who are the WSU Campus Security Authorities?

The Clery Act recognizes certain WSU officials and offices as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs), who are 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 disciplinary proceedings. If such an official of an institution is a pastoral or professional counselor, the official is not considered a campus security authority when acting as a pastoral or professional counselor.”
