The Campus Security Advisory Committee (CSAC) is responsible for providing a forum for issues and concerns related to safety and security on campus. The committee reviews current campus security policies and procedures and makes recommendations for their improvement relating to:

  • Educating the campus community, including security personnel and those who advise or supervise students, about sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking offenses;
  • Educating the campus community about personal safety and crime prevention;
  • Reporting sexual assaults, domestic violence and stalking incidents and assisting victims during investigations;
  • Referring complaints to appropriate authorities; 
  • Counseling victims; and
  • Responding to inquiries from concerned persons. 

The committee members are selected by the President, with the faculty senate and student council each nominating twice the number of appointees to form two thirds of the committee; the President selects the final third. The committee is required to report on its findings and recommendations annually. The Advisory Committee on Campus Safety will provide upon request all  campus  crime statistics as reported to the United States Department of Education.
