Faculty and Staff
The BC Human Resources Department requires work-related information (title, email address, work address, and work/departmental phone number) be displayed in the BC Directory, which is available to members of the BC Community who have signed in with their username and password. All information may be made unavailable to the general public. Employees who have extenuating circumstances, which in their opinion, warrants suppression of any of the work-related information described above, should contact Suzanne Lawler in the Human Resources Department at (617) 552-3336 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Total Non-Disclosure is an option available to BC students within Privacy Preferences, which allows you to conceal your identity from the rest of the BC Community and from the general public beyond BC. For those who choose this option, BC will take exceptional measures to deny knowledge of your existence to others. This service is not without its disadvantages. Some implications of selecting this option:
- Neither your name nor details about you will show in electronic and print directories.
- BC telephone operators will have no information about you or record of you at Boston College. Anyone calling the university, trying to contact you, will not be able to reach you unless you have told them your phone number.
- BC administrators will not acknowledge your existence to ANYONE seeking information about you. This includes potential employers, graduate schools, loan agencies, credit card agencies, etc.
- Your email address will differ from the normal format. It will be "email@example.com." Mail sent to "firstname.lastname@example.org" will be rejected. Therefore, you will need to notify others of your address if you want to receive email from them.
- Some of your information will be available to select administrators and faculty, strictly for business purposes. Your instructors will be given your email address, photo, school, and class year.
Note: Selecting "No" on Total Non-Disclosure and suppressing every individual item of information is not the same thing as selecting "Yes" on Total Non-Disclosure. The University will only be able to release your name to internal inquiries and will tell the inquirer that you have suppressed your information.
