George Brown College Employee Identification and Access Card Program
George Brown College's Staff Access/ID Card program is intended to help create a safe and secure environment for the staff and students of the college. Using a new technology card, the College's Staff ID card is being modified to expand its functionality - taking it beyond its current uses as a staff identification and LLC borrowers card to include keyless entry to offices, classrooms, labs and other authorized areas. The new card format will enable other potential uses as well.
Staff Access/ID Card Eligibility
All full-time, part-time and sessional faculty and staff, with the exception of temporary and supply staff, contractors, continuing education instructors and student employees, are eligible to obtain the Staff Access/ID card. Staff excluded from the program may request their supervisor to authorize the Public Safety and Security Department to issue a generic access card [non-ID].
Please come down to your campus Library Learning Commons where LLC User Service staff will be pleased to take your photo and update the database.
On-line photo submission
You may login, using your IDM (Identity Management) login ID and password, just like your Stu-View or computer login. Photos should be of a single subject showing head/shoulders (only) view. Please check the website for criteria regarding the required quality and specifications for photos and then follow the 5 easy steps to upload your photo. For the best result, please use a camera resolution between 2MB to 5BM, and take your picture and crop it just like a passport photo. Once you have received confirmation, please come to your campus Library Learning Commons to pick up your Staff Access/ID card.
PRIVACY & Your Staff Access/ID Card
Protection of your privacy is a key element of the GBC Staff Access/ID Card. The Staff Access/ID card displays only first and last names and photographs. No other personal information or personal identifiers are visible on the card as would be the case if you used other forms of government-issued identification for college purposes.
Other information required for Access/ID purposes is both limited in scope and stored in a dedicated database that is accessible only by a "reader" using a pre-printed barcode and barcode number on the back of the Card. This information which includes your photo, name, department, division and campus, along with your supervisor's name, and employment status (e.g. active, on leave, etc.) will be accessible by Campus Security for their access control system for purposes of keyless entry.
Privacy of Personal Information Policy
The information collected to produce your Staff Access/ID card, including the photograph, is used for college processes only including access to facilities, services, resources and activities as well as the production of a range of directories for internal College use.
