BCI is a welcoming and inclusive community. Its location, a vertical campus in the heart of a vibrant urban environment, calls for a campus access and security policy that balances ease of access with practical and common-sense procedures to help protect students, faculty, employees, and guests. This policy, the joint recommendation of a committee of BCI faculty, staff, and students, is intended to expedite campus access for authorized individuals, to enhance the personal safety of all members of the BCI community, and to protect the personal property of the School and of individual community members.

  • It is the policy of BCI that authorized community members and guests who comply with the parameters contained herein will have access to BCI facilities. This policy defines those individuals eligible for building access privileges.
  • This policy describes how eligible individuals gain authorized building access privileges (usually by possessing a valid ID card or by being the Guest of a School Host).
  • This policy describes when building access privileges might be suspended or revoked.
  • Definitions It is the policy of BCI that authorized community members and guests who comply with the parameters contained herein will have access to BCI facilities. This policy defines those individuals eligible for building access privileges.
  • This policy describes how eligible individuals gain authorized building access privileges (usually by possessing a valid ID card or by being the Guest of a School Host).
  • This policy describes when building access privileges might be suspended or revoked.

Guest – any individual, not a student, faculty, staff member or affiliate of BCI, who is hosted by a student, faculty member, or staff member.

Affiliate – non-employee, non-student member of the BCI community that includes, but is not limited to: vendors, volunteers, retirees, alumni, summer scholars, and conference attendees.

Resident Student – any BCI student who has a current room assignment in one of the School residences.

Non-Resident Student – any enrolled BCI student who does not reside in a BCI residence hall.
Host – any BCI faculty member, staff member, or student who requests that a Guest be granted access to BCI facilities.

Guest Registration Form – a form that faculty and staff may use to pre-register Guests. The Guest Registration Form is located at adminstration area of the Brookline campus. Pre-registered Guests will pick up their Guest Badge at the security desk in the lobby of the building in which their Host is located.

Overnight Hours – defined as Monday through Sunday, 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. During Overnight Hours only those with authorized BCI ID Cards can enter the main (street) entrances to BCI buildings. Note: Not all ID cards give access to all buildings. An BCI ID Card holder must have authorization to enter the building that she or he is attempting to access.

Acceptable Forms of Identification – defined as a valid photo Identification (ID) with the individual’s name on it. The following types of ID are generally deemed to be acceptable: Driver’s License, Passport, Military ID, ID card issued by another BCI with photo of student, Resident Alien Card.

General

All community members and guests are expected to abide by BCI policies and procedures.

Each person entering the BCI should use his or her BCI ID card or Guest Badge to enter. To ensure speed of entry and to avoid backlog, each person should have his or her ID card or Guest Badge ready to use before entry into the BCI facility.

The security of our buildings is a shared responsibility of all community members. Therefore, disabling or propping open of secured doors, community members’ improper use of their BCI ID cards, allowing unauthorized persons into one of our buildings or the purposeful attempt to circumvent this policy are all acts in violation of this policy and subject to disciplinary action and revocation of building access privileges.

Faculty and Staff Guests

Faculty and staff are encouraged to pre-register their Guests before their arrival on campus to ensure a smooth process. You can pre-register a Guest by utilizing the following process:

  1. E-mail BCI  a Visitor Guest Registration application (available on request from the Bursars office and return a completed application.;
  2. The Guest’s name will appear on the computer located at the security desk in the lobby of the building and once the Guest is checked in and provided a Guest Badge.
  3. Your guest will then proceed to the Bursars office, and you will be paged to meet them there.

Guests visiting a faculty or staff member unannounced must, after presenting an Acceptable Form of Identification, call that individual from the security desk. The Host will then be required to either come to the security desk to sign the Guest in, or complete a BCI Visitor Guest Registration application and register the Guest.

Students’ Guests

Guests must be signed in by the BCI student who will be their Host while they are visiting. The Host must present his or her current BCI ID Card when signing in their Guest, and the Guest must present an Acceptable Form of Identification and legibly sign the guest log at the security desk. The Host must accompany his or her Guest at all times while in campus facilities. Non-Resident Students can host a Guest in all facilities except Residence Halls. Resident Students can host a Guest in all facilities and in the Residence Hall in which they reside.

Special Circumstances

A current BCI ID or Guest Badge will be required for entry into BCI buildings. Persons without a current BCI ID or Guest Badge will not be admitted, with the exception of the following:

  • Faculty and students from other academic institutions authorized to use the BCI facility will be required to show their current photo ID from their school and sign in. If the faculty or student member’s school ID is not a photo ID, a supplemental Acceptable Form of Identification must be shown along with the school ID.
  • Any faculty or staff member may present their BCI ID and sign in any other faculty or staff member without the faculty or staff member being vouched for having to display any form of identification.
  • In those circumstances where a faculty member does not have any identification on their person, and there are no other faculty or staff members present to vouch for/ sign in that faculty member, the security officer on duty will verify said member’s identity by consulting the hardcopy faculty directory located at each security desk containing the name, title and photo of every faculty member of the BCI. After verifying that faculty member’s identity s/he will be permitted access.
  • Students from other academic institutions who are cross registered for classes at BCI will be required to show their issued BCI ID Card.
  • In those situations where tours involving large outside group (i.e. prospective students) are being conducted, the department overseeing these tours will be responsible for distributing, and accounting for, the Guest Badges that their department has been issued for this purpose.
  • Delivery persons and messengers will be required to present an Acceptable Form of Identification to access a building for the purposes of making a delivery. They will be required to fill out the ‘BCI Daily Access Log’ after which they will be allowed to complete their delivery. Delivery persons making bulk deliveries will utilize the loading docks located at the rear of 320 Washington Street. Property Management staff will be responsible for ensuring the identity of those persons entering BCI facilities via this method.

This Campus Access and Security Policy describes normal campus access policies and procedures. It is an unfortunate reality that, from time to time, the BCI may need to adjust its normal procedures to protect the BCI community and property. The following are representative (but not exhaustive) examples of when building access privileges may be altered or revoked:

  • In the case of an emergency requiring the evacuation or lockdown of one or more campus buildings.
  • In the case of legal process, such as a no-contact order issued by a Massachusetts District or Superior Court.
  • In the case where the BCI through the Brookline Police Department exercises its authority to issue a No-Trespass Order.
  • In the case where the BCI Human Resources Department, or Academic Affairs limits or revokes access privileges for a disciplined or terminated employee.
  • In the case where the Dean of Students limits or revokes access privileges in connection with the student discipline process.
  • In the case where the Brookline Police Department or the BCI’s Emergency Management Team determines that it is in the BCI’s best interests to limit or revoke access privileges.

Authority:

BCI staff and faculty do not have the authority to make any arrests, however, staff is empowered to contact the Brookline or Malden Police Department and register formal complaints on behalf of the School, its students, faculty or staff.

This policy is formalized with the Brookline Police Department and exists within its records. Additionally, the Police department has an updated faculty and staff list, as well as contact information and emergency plan for each facility.

BCI encourages complete and prompt reporting of all crimes by any persons occurring at any facility under the control of BCI or any event in which BCI participates.  Faculty, staff and students are mandatory reporters of all suspected criminal activity.  Failure to make a formal report is grounds for termination and/or expulsion.

BCI utilizes a state-of-the-art Emergency Notification System (ENS) to communicate with students, faculty, and staff in the event of a major emergency on the Brookline or Malden campus. It simultaneously transmits messages by, email, and SMS (text messaging). The School strongly encourages all students, faculty, and staff to provide up-to-date contact information by completing the (Emergency Notification System) ENS registration form. This form is available upon request to the Bursars office.

In the event of a major emergency in the vicinity of an BCI location (Boston,  or Malden), emergency notices will be posted and updated as soon as possible on the BCI homepage, and the Police Department site.

Students and their families should devise a personal communication plan for emergencies (e.g., students should plan to call and/or email family members directly). Each student should have a secondary contact person in the event that his/her primary contact is unreachable.

Please read and make sure you understand the following:

  • Emergency Response Guide
  • Emergency Response Guide for Faculty
  • Emergency Evacuation Plans:

It is important to have a thorough understanding of the Response Guides and Evacuation Plans before emergencies occur.

BCI and all schools administering title IV funds shall pursuant to Federal Law, celebrate Constitution and Citizen Day

On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created. We encourage all Americans to observe this important day in our nation’s history by attending local events in your area. Celebrate Constitution Day through activities, learning, parades and demonstrations of our Love for the United State of America and the Blessings of Freedom Our Founding Fathers secured for us.

The admissions office is responsible for organizing activities for Constitution and Citizen Day.  The school will not hold classes on September 17th of each year so that students may use the time to participate and learn the significance of the establishment of the U.S Constitution and the benefits and responsibilities of being a citizen thereof.  If September 17th is on a federal or school holiday or weekend, the school shall offer the programs the most immediate preceding day.  All activities and materials are provided at no cost to students.

A list of scheduled activities and the times shall be posted on the Schools website or on the school bulletin board no later than August 17th.

For more information please see the following link: http://www.constitutionday.com/

The clerk maintains electronic versions of all required disseminatable materials and will reproduce them as needed.
