The Jeanne Clery Campus Security Policy & Crime Statistics Disclosure Act requires Carlow University to specify those individuals on campus to whom crimes should be reported. Those designated as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are legally responsible to report all crimes reported to them to University Police. Carlow University policy and expectation is that all faculty and staff will report any crimes of which they become aware so as to safeguard the welfare of the community. Additionally, any community member is encouraged to report crimes through one of the individuals or mechanisms outlined below.

The law recognizes four categories of CSAs:

  • University police;
  • Non-police security (normally not used at Carlow);
  • Individuals with significant responsibility for student and campus activities;
  • Others designated by the institution as people to whom crimes should be reported.

Title IX Responsible Employees

Title IX requires the University to specify those individuals to whom it is appropriate to report incidents of Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct. Responsible Employees under Title IX are defined as any employee:

  • Who has the authority to take action to redress sexual misconduct;
  • Who has been given the duty of reporting incidents of sexual misconduct or any other misconduct by students to the Title IX Coordinator or other appropriate designee;
  • Who a student reasonably believes has this authority or duty.

Carlow University has designated the following individuals as Campus Security Authorities under the Clery Act and Responsible Employees under Title IX. The list is the same. Anyone who witnesses, experiences, or learns of a crime, or any form of sexual misconduct, on our campus should immediately report it to one of these individuals.

Non-Confidential Resources

Notice or complaints of discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or email address, or by mail using any of the following options:

Confidential Resources

The following individuals are specifically not designated as CSAs because they fall within the exemption for pastoral and professional counselors when acting in the scope of that role. However, these individuals are also trained in the responsibilities of a CSA and are strongly encouraged to report any crimes of which they become aware:
