Campus Security Authorities (CSA)

High Point University has identified many staff and faculty members as Campus Security Authorities (CSA’s). Campus Security Authorities are individuals who are involved in security or who have a significant responsibility for student and campus activities. These staff  and faculty members must report crimes to High Point University’s Security Department or the High Point Police Department and inform the victim of help that is available to them.


CSA’s can also report a crime by calling the Security Department at (336)841-9111 for emergencies or our non-emergency number at (336)841-9112. Any question regarding the filling of these forms or an individual’s status as a CSA can be directed to:
