Missing Student Notification Policy

In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act, the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse has developed the following missing student notification policy for students who reside in on-campus housing.

POLICY: If any member of the University community has reason to believe that a student who resides in on-campus housing is missing, especially if suspicious or life threatening circumstances are present, the University Police should be notified.

PROTOCOL: If a student is missing it should be reported to University Police so they can start an investigation into the status of the missing student. Once it is determined that the student is missing the custodial parent/legal guardian and/or designated confidential emergency contact will be contacted. This contact information is gathered through the housing application process in which students have been asked to designate an emergency contact. A student’s contact information may be accessed only by authorized campus officials and law enforcement as appropriate.

If you have any questions about any of the material covered in the handbook, please contact the Office of Residence Life at (608) 785-8075 or by clicking here.
