Re: email address as directory information

We have defined e-mail as part of directory information. Not doing so would have seriously hampered students' 
communicating with each other. We do get FOIA requests, but we do charge for that, and they're not overwhelming.

Subject: [SECURITY] email address as directory information

We are deliberating over whether we should or shouldn't include student email addresses in our list of  directory 
information elements as allowed by FERPA.  If you institution has chosen not to include email addresses as part of 
directory information, how do you control unauthorized access in a way that doesn't stymy collaboration among students 
and among students and industry representatives   If your institution has chosen email addresses to be part of 
directory information, have you faced a barrage of Freedom of Access requests under your state laws (if applicable)?
