The strength and vitality that Boston College today enjoys is due in no small part to the many important contributions made by each of its members. The University benefits greatly from the dedication and professionalism that each of you brings to your work.
As a Jesuit institution, Boston College takes special interest in the well-being of everyone in its community. The policies, benefits, and services described in this handbook reflect that concern.

Welcome Letter from
Welcome to the Boston College community!
As an employee, you are part of an institution which is proud of its Jesuit heritage and the accomplishments that have made it a first-rate national university. Boston College, as an employer, recognizes the importance of providing a working environment that is conducive to carrying out the College's mission. For employees, this means the administration of personnel policies, as well as benefit and compensation programs, that are competitive, fair, and understandable. This handbook intends to communicate terms and conditions of employment that apply to each of us as we carry out our responsibilities at Boston College. The policies, benefits, and services it describes reflect a concern not only for the well-being but also for the personal growth and professional development of all members of the Boston College community.
While the handbook provides important information relative to all aspects of your employment at Boston College, it cannot be used as the basis for all decisions. To that end, I encourage you to consult your supervisors and the members of the Human Resources staff. The Human Resources Department is structured to provide a full range of personnel services, including benefits administration, recruiting and placement, classification and compensation, and employee relations. The Department also encompasses institutional diversity, employee development, faculty/staff assistance, and child care.
We invite your comments on the contents of this handbook, as well as any other observations which may be helpful in the delivery of services to the Boston College community. On behalf of the entire Human Resources staff, I would like to convey our best wishes for fulfillment at Boston College.
Leo V. Sullivan
Vice President for Human Resources
