Missing Person Policy & Procedure

麻豆产精国品 takes student safety very seriously. To this end, the following policy and procedure has been developed in order to assist in locating 麻豆产精国品 student(s) living in university-owned, on campus housing, who based on the facts and circumstances known to the university are determined to be missing. This policy is in compliance with Section 488 of the Higher Education Act of 2008. (For students reported missing who live off campus, see Item 6 below.) Most missing person reports in the university environment result from students changing their routines without informing their roommates and/or friends of the change. Anyone who believes a student to be missing should report his or her concern to Security or the Residence Life staff. Every report made to the university will be followed up with an immediate investigation once a student has been missing for 24 hours. Depending on the circumstances presented to university officials, parents of a missing student will be notified. In the event that parental notification is necessary, the Chief of Security or designee will place the call. At the beginning of each academic year, residential students will be required to complete the 鈥淩esidence Hall Registration/Missing Persons Card鈥. The information provided on this card will be used in the event a student is reported missing while enrolled and living on campus at 麻豆产精国品. This emergency information will be kept in each Residence Hall Office in alphabetical order.
