Missing Student 

Allegheny Wesleyan College understands the responsibility of protecting and monitoring the whereabouts of the students who live in the residence halls. At the beginning of each academic year AWC will require all students to provide the contact information for a designated emergency contact person who should be a custodial parent or legal guardian if the student is under 18. The college will follow this Missing Person Notification Procedure:

• Any member of the campus community who becomes aware that a student is missing (beyond what is normal) must immediately notify the Dean of Students or the Director of Security. The Dean and Director of Security will promptly investigate the whereabouts of the student.

• If the student is found to be absent without leave, AWC will attempt to notify the designated emergency contact person no later than 24 hours after the time that the student is determined to be missing.

• AWC will also notify the local law enforcement agency no later than 24 hours after the time that the student is determined to be missing.

For a complete policy on safety, security, and health copies can be obtained at the General Office.
