Reporting a Missing Student Any person who believes a Johnson & Wales University (JWU) student is missing should immediately report the situation to Campus Safety & Security or to any member of the JWU residential life staff. In the event another university office or employee other than a member of Campus Safety and Security receives a report of a missing student, that person shall immediately notify Campus Safety & Security of the report received.
Upon receipt of a missing student notification, Campus Safety & Security will make a determination of when to implement missing student procedures based on whether there are unusual or suspicious circumstances surrounding the student’s absence and/or whether the student has been absent from campus without explanation for more than 24 hours. Official Notification Procedures Campus Safety & Security together with other authorized JWU officials will, after the student has been missing for 24 hours or sooner if they it deem advisable to do so based upon the circumstances presented, initiate official notification procedures according to the Missing Student Response Policy then in place.
If no such policy is in place, Campus Safety and Security shall notify local police and/or other local law enforcement and shall also contact the following in the order they deem advisable:
Once the student has been located, further notifications do not need to be made. Confidential Contact Option for Resident Students A confidential contact is someone in addition to the student’s regular emergency contact whom the student would like JWU to contact if the student is missing. Only Campus Safety & Security and a limited number of other authorized JWU officials will have access to the identity of a student’s confidential contact in the event a student is missing. JWU will not disclose the identity of a confidential contact to anyone else (other than local law enforcement if needed for the investigation of the student’s disappearance).
Only students who live on campus have the option of registering a “confidential contact.” Confidential contacts may be registered by e-mail from a student’s JWU-issued e-mail address. Instructions for registering a confidential contact can be found at:
