Missing Persons Policy - Brookdale Campus Only
This City University of New York (CUNY) Policy only applies to dormitory residents.
The City University of New York (CUNY) has established a policy on “Missing Persons” to establish official notification procedures for missing students who reside in on-campus housing.
DEFINITION: A student is deemed a “missing person” when the student is a current on-campus housing (Brookdale Campus) resident and he or she has been missing from campus for more than 24 hours without any known reason.
Each CUNY student who resides in on-campus housing must identify a contact individual (emergency contact) who will be contacted no later than 24 hours from the time the student is determined to be missing. The student’s designated emergency contact will be kept confidential and will be retained by Residence Life at the Brookdale Campus.
Students under the age of 18 and who are not emancipated must designate an emergency contact. In the event that a student under the age of 18 is determined to be missing, the student’s custodial parent or legal guardian will be notified no later than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing.
Any individual on campus who has information that a student who is a Brookdale resident is missing must notify the Hunter College Department of Public Safety (212-481-4444) as quickly as possible. If, after an investigation, the Department of Public Safety determines the student is missing, it must, after consultation with the Office of Student Affairs, designate a campus official to contact the missing student’s emergency contact. This contact must be imitated no later than 24 hours after the time the resident student is determined to be missing.
