Erskine College requests that all new students annually provide contact information to be used in the event that the student is officially reported missing during his/her tenure at Erskine.
If a student is suspected missing from the campus, immediately contact the Office of Student Development at (864) 379-8701.
All reports of missing persons made to the Office of Student Development are followed up with an ongoing investigation. If it is determined by the Office of Student Development, in conjunction with Campus Police that a student for whom a missing person report has been filed has been missing for more than 24 hours, then within the next 24 hours Erskine will:
- Notify the individual identified by the student as the missing person contact;
- If the student is under 18 years old, the College will notify a parent or guardian; and
- In cases where the student is over 18 and has designated another primary contact, the College will notify the appropriate individual.
- Campus Police will contact 911 to send out a missing persons alert.
