It is the policy of the Office of Residential Programs at Hofstra University to investigate any report of a missing student living in one of the University’s residence halls. All students residing in a campus residence hall are requested to complete a Confidential Contact Information form, available upon check-in to their residence hall. The resident student is asked to identify the name and contact number of the individual(s) to be contacted in the event the student is determined to be missing, as set forth below. This contact information will be registered confidentially and may not be disclosed, except to law enforcement personnel in furtherance of a missing person investigation and authorized Hofstra University officials, including Public Safety officers. Hofstra understands that students may make arrangements to stay outside of the residential halls, and as such, the location of students in the halls is not monitored by Residential Assistants or other University staff. If a student intends to leave his or her residence hall for an extended period of time, the student is strongly encouraged to advise the residence hall staff before leaving, to avoid the student being reported “missing.” If, however, there is reason to believe a resident student is missing, all reasonable efforts will be made to locate the student to determine his or her state of health and well-being. These efforts, which are done in conjunction with the Department of Public Safety, include, but are not limited to, checking the student’s room, speaking with friends and/or roommates, checking ID access, locating the resident student’s vehicle and calling the student’s cell phone number or other known contact information. Where a student has been missing for 24 hours, students, employees, or other individuals should make a report to the Office of Residential Programs, the Dean of Students Office, or the Department of Public Safety. All missing student reports will be referred immediately to the Department of Public Safety. If upon investigation by the Department of Public Safety, the resident student is determined missing, staff from Public Safety and/or Student Affairs will contact the resident’s designated “Confidential Contact” within 24 hours. For any resident student under the age of 18, Hofstra will notify a custodial parent or guardian, in addition to any other individual designated on the Confidential Contact Information form, within 24 hours after the time the resident student is determined to be missing by the Department of Public Safety. Public Safety will continue to investigate, utilizing established investigative procedures in collaboration with staff from Residential Programs, other campus offices and local law enforcement agencies. Where a Confidential Contact cannot be located or has not been assigned, Public Safety will inform the appropriate law enforcement agency and/or make contact with the student’s parents or legal guardian. In all cases where the Department of Public Safety determines that a student is missing, Public Safety will notify the appropriate law enforcement agency within 24 hours of that determination.

York City.

This course examines the individuals, institutions and economic forces – legal and illegal – that built NYC, making it run day- to-day and shaping its future. Finance, fashion, publishing, communications and the arts ... New York City is justly famous as a world leader in these fields and others. But why does New York now have more extreme income inequality than any other part of the country? Students examine this question though class work and trips to a variety of NYC neighborhoods. 020. Introduction to Legal Systems, Environment and Contracts 3 s.h. 10004: Jan. 2-15; MTWRF, 8:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.; Bass; 308 C.V.

(IS) Special Topics In LBGT Studies: How Gay Is This? 3 s.h. 10044: Jan. 2-23; Powell; Distance Learning Gays and lesbians have crept into the country’s media in marketing, television, movies, and even politics and in a variety of surprisingly positive ways. This course invites students to examine instances of an LGBT presence in various media forms by analyzing the aspects that demonstrate queer elements. These analyses will serve to determine their target audience, goals, and reception. Does the success of a gay media text depend on just how “gay” it is, and on what criteria can one determine its degree of “gayness”? Instead of a preoccupation with “how gay” a media event might be, a better question would be, “How does a media event read ‘gay’?” and the complementary question: “Why do advertising agencies use ‘gay’ marketing techniques?” 181.
