Who is a Campus Security Authority according to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act? A Campus Security Authority, may be a dean of students; a director of athletics, a team coach, a faculty advisor to a student group, or any other NAU official "who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities". The following are probably not campus security authorities: a single teaching faculty member (other than an advisor to a student group); or a physician in a campus health center or a counselor in a counseling center whose only responsibility is to provide care to students; or campus clerical staff. Unsure if you are a campus security authority? See your dean, director, department head, or contact Sgt. Paul Sorenson, at 523-8058 or via e-mail.
