If a student goes to the hospital but is conscious and aware (allergic reaction, broken bone, virus, etc.) we will not contact your emergency contact unless you ask us to. The assumption is that students will contact their emergency person as needed on their own.
Transportation to a medical facility due to severe intoxication, overdose, or any injury involving mental and/or psychological impairment (unresponsive or unconscious) will result in your emergency contact being notified.
The individual who has been identified as your emergency contact will not receive notification in instances of mental health concern, stalking or harassment, sexual violence, and/or other Title IX related situations without your direct and prior consent.
Federal and state law requires the University to notify an emergency contact in the instance of transportation to a hospital for any reason for all students who are minors, under the age of 18, at the time of the incident.
The University always has the well-being of students at heart and will communicate with the emergency contact if it feels that it is in the best interest for the student.
