The purpose of this section is to allow residential students to register a confidential emergency contact to be used in the event they are reported missing. University Security is responsible for investigating reports of missing persons on campus and will use the information provided only in the event a residential student is reported missing under the policy. This information will be accessible to local law enforcement. No later than 24 hours after determining that a student is missing, the Vice President for Student Life, or designee, will notify the emergency contact (for students 18 and over) or the parent/guardian (for students under the age of 18) that the student is believed to be missing.
You are required to supply this information. If you prefer that the University contact your emergency contact already listed in your housing application above, completing this form is unnecessary. Just check the box that says "use emergency contact." To change your confidential emergency contact in the future, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
