Clery Act and Campus Security Authority (CSA)

For information on the Clery Act and UMBC’s Campus Security Authority, please use the following link:

Campus Security Authorities (“CSA”) are designated university employees who are required to disclose and report on-campus incidents of which they become aware. This obligation arises from the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (“Clery Act”).

Under the Clery Act, colleges and universities are required to disclose annual information about certain reported crimes that occur on campus.
In compliance with this Act, UMBC files a report of campus crime statistics with the United States Department of Education each year.

The Clery Act recognizes that a campus community member may report criminal activities to officials other than law enforcement. Even at institutions with a police department on campus, a campus community member may elect to report an incident to someone other than the campus police. For this reason, the Clery Act requires all institutions to collect crime reports from a variety of individuals and organizations that are considered to be CSAs under the law.

The Clery Act Crimes CSAs Must Report Are:
1. Murder and Manslaughter
2. Robbery and Burglary
3. Aggravated Assault
4. Motor Vehicle Theft
5. Arson
6. Hate Crimes – Any of the above-mentioned offenses, and any incidents of Larceny-Theft, Simple Assault, Intimidation, or Destruction/ Damage/ Vandalism of Property that were motivated by bias
7. Sex Offenses, not including Sexual Harassment or Indecent Exposure
8. Domestic Violence
9. Relationship/Dating violence
10. Stalking.

Please note that not all designated Responsible Employees under Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 are classified as CSAs. If you have questions about your designation, please contact the Office of Equity and Civil Rights at for further instructions.

The following link directs to the CSA Annual Security Report. Specifically, the log includes incidents that were reported to a CSA, but not to UMBC Police.

Use ECR’s reporting/ referral form to report incidents under the UMBC Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) Policy, and Anti-Discrimination Policy which apply to all UMBC students, student employees, faculty, staff, interns, contractors, volunteers, guests and visitors.
