University of Richmond Campus Security Authorities

Richmond is obligated under the federal Clery Act to report annually to current and prospective students and employees statistics on specified crimes occurring on campus and on certain non-campus property.  The University's on-campus geography is displayed in the map below.

 Clery Geogrpahy Map

 The Act requires that institutions collect statistical information from three groups of “Campus Security Authorities” individuals in preparing this annual report.  

  1. Campus Law Enforcement;
  2. Other officials on campus who have been identified as those to whom reports of crimes should be made; and
  3. Other individuals who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings.

The intent of including non-law enforcement positions as CSA’s is to acknowledge that many individuals are hesitant to report crimes directly to police, but may be more inclined to report to other campus affiliated individuals.

The University annually reviews the position listing for Campus Security Officer. If you have any questions about your reporting responsibilities, contact Eric Beatty at (

What does it mean for me if my position is listed as a Campus Security Authority?

It means that you need to report to Police if any of the criminal offenses covered by the Clery Act are reported to you. You do not have to report names or any personally identifiable information if the person reporting to you does not wish to disclose that information to the Police. You will have to report as much as is known about the nature of the incident, date/time of the incident, location and sufficient information about the incident.

You do not have to classify the incident, or engage in any type of evidence collection. The Police Department will support the university in those efforts.

*Note: In cases of Sexual Misconduct inclusive of assault, stalking, dating and domestic violence, both Clery and Title IX apply. To comply with Title IX you must report all relevant details that have been reported to you to Title IX. (Tracy Cassalia 804.289.8464). This includes the names of the complainant and alleged perpetrator(s), witnesses, and the date, time and location.
