We do not have email addresses as directory information. It hasn't hampered
student collaboration, according to our Student Congress, and the recently
reaffirmed they want to continue this way.

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)?
