Missing Person Contact

Contributed by: Erin Lynam
Published: Tuesday, 24 February 2015 2:00 PM
The Campus Safety and Security Act (commonly known as the Clery Act) requires Ball State to provide each resident student the opportunity to specify a contact person in case he or she is reported missing. Ball State allows all students the opportunity to specify a contact person. This contact may or may not be the same as the emergency contact – it is up to the student to determine who that person is. If no contact person is specified, Ball State will notify the emergency contact or other persons as needed in compliance with Clery Act provisions.
