Privacy Compliance Information
The Privacy Compliance information page is under construction.
The Office of Diversity and Community is spearheading a college-wide professional development initiative for faculty and staff. The purpose is to create a positive working and community environment that seeks to encourage professional and personal growth, enhance TC's preventative law awareness, enhance campus culture and strengthen relationships within the community. A professional development committee was formed, in September 2006,to assist in the creation, guidance and implementation of the initiative.
The College began this effort with Information Privacy Compliance Training in March 2006. The training covered the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. FERPA governs the students privacy rights of their educational records. Gramm-Leach-Bliley involves safeguarding the College's information. To ensure thatthe community is well informed about the issues involving FERPA and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the College delivered a government mandated program for all faculty and staff. This two hour session helped illustrate the best practices needed to secure privacy and confidentiality for ourselves, colleagues, students and alumni. It provided answers to commonly asked questions as well as attempted to provide answers for employees specific needs.
