In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, all students residing in on-campus housing must have the option of identifying a person whom the University will notify if the student is determined missing by the Department of Public Safety or the local law enforcement agency. Columbia provides this option to all students. The contact information will be confidential, accessible only to authorized campus officials and law enforcement, and may not be disclosed outside a missing person investigation. More information about the Missing Student Procedure provision is available in the Public Safety Annual Report. Students can update the contact information on SSOL.
