Notification of University Administration
The death of a student often occurs away from campus and a family member usually provides notification to the university. However, in circumstances when a student dies on campus or in the surrounding community, the University Police Department (UPD) or Delaware County officials may be first responders. In such cases, UPD will immediately notify the vice president for student affairs and confirm notification of the student’s family. Indiana law requires that the coroner notify the next of kin.
The following information is helpful to properly identify the student and to ensure the correct information is disseminated.
- Student’s full name
- Student identification number
- Name and address of parents or spouse
- Date and cause of death
- College or major
- Enrollment status
- Residence (on or off campus)
