Missing Student Notification Policy for Resident Students Anytime a member of the Randolph College community has reason to believe that a student who resides in on-campus housing is missing, he or she should immediately notify the Department of Safety and Security at 434-947-8000 or call 9-1-1 to alert Lynchburg police. Campus Security will fully cooperate with local police to generate a missing person report and initiate an investigation. All reports of missing persons will be investigated. If the missing student is under the age of 18 and is not an emancipated individual, the Department of Safety and Security or a representative of the Dean of Student’s office will notify the student's parent or legal guardian immediately after it is determined that the student has been missing for more than 24 hours. If the preliminary investigation indicates a need, local law enforcement agencies and parents will be notified immediately. Inaddition to registering an emergency contact, students residing in on-campus housing have the option to identify confidentially an individual to be contacted by Randolph College in the event the student is determined to be missing for more than 24 hours. If a student has identified such an individual, the College will notify that individual no later than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing. Students who wish to identify a confidential contact can do so through the College’s Dean of Student’s office.
