E. Emergency Information-Parent Notification

When a University staff member becomes aware that a student is suffering from a serious injury or illness or is abnormally absent from his or her housing unit, the next of kin will be notified under the following circumstances:

  1. Seriously injured or ill. In some cases, in accord with the wishes of the student and upon the advice of a University physician or psychiatrist, notification may be delayed or omitted. This decision will be made in consultation with the Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs/Dean of Students.
  2. Abnormally absent from his or her housing unit and from class attendance for a sufficient period of time to cause concern for personal welfare.
