What is Phishing?
Phishing occurs when someone attempts to use electronic communication such as email to fraudulently acquire confidential information such as your password by pretending to be a trusted person or part of a trusted group.
How does phishing work?
Phishing is a form of social engineering, the art of manipulating people into sharing confidential information or performing a desired action. Phishing attacks are commonly transmitted via email and social network sites like Facebook and Twitter.
How will they encourage me to share my information?
Phishers typically present a plausible scenario and often take advantage of the recipient’s fear, greed or lust. They also often present a sense of urgency. Examples include messages that:
- Tell you that your account was misused by you and will be disabled
- Tell you that your account was compromised and will be disabled
- Tell you that your Mailbox has reached its limit and will be disabled
What might the phisher ask for?
- Your password
- Account number, card number, PIN, access code
- Personally identifiable information like your date of birth, Social Security number or address
- Confidential information like student records, financial records or technical information
Signs of a potential phishing attack
If the communication you receive exhibits any of the following, it may be a phishing attack.
- You are asked for confidential information
- You are asked to visit a web page with a suspicious or unexpected address
- You do not recognize the sender or the sender does not normally contact you
- You recognize the sender, but the sender’s email address, alias or name spelling are unusual
- You’re told something negative will occur if you don’t supply the requested information
- The writing style is unusual
How to protect yourself
- Ask yourself whether you should be sharing the information requested
- If the supposed sender is someone or an organization known to you, contact them to discuss the request
- Use a browser that alerts you when you attempt to visit known phishing websites
- Before you click a link, inspect it
- If unsure of a link’s authenticity, use a link you know or find the link via a search engine

Albion College understands student employees are students first and employees second. Students are expected to meet their commitments to the employment arrangement, arriving on time, completing work during scheduled hours and otherwise acting with dignity and respect for supervisors, staff, other students and other members of the College Community.
Albion College does not tolerate discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace. Complaints should be referred immediately to the attention of the employee’s supervisor, manager, department chairperson or directly to the Office of Human Resources, 629-0205.
Summer student positions are limited to 40 hour per work week for all campus jobs. The work week runs from Sunday through Saturday regardless of when a pay period begins or ends.
Statement of Non-Discrimination
Albion College is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability, as protected by law, in all educational programs and activities, admission of students, and conditions of employment.
Albion College is historically related with the United Methodist Church, the modern form of the denomination that founded the College in 1835. Albion College focuses on Christian unity and understanding diversity within Christianity. There are many different Christian groups on campus. In addition, people from other religious backgrounds are equally included in spiritual life at Albion College. There is no preferential treatment; the College has a core commitment to supporting a spiritually diverse campus and promoting academic freedom.
Faculty Resolution on College-Church Relationship
The Faculty of Albion College recognizes the long history of social activism, service, support for education, and tradition of character formation in the United Methodist Church. The United Methodist Church, both past and present, is internally diverse. Its members and leadership advocate a range of different ethical and political positions. Albion's Faculty interprets the College's United Methodist affiliation in accord with this diversity.
Therefore, the College's affiliation does not imply exclusive faculty endorsement of United Methodist social teachings or theological doctrines as presented in the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church. Albion does not integrate the social teachings of the Book of Discipline into its curriculum or treat them as expectations concerning the behavior of students, faculty, or staff.
One example of the faculty's neutrality regarding internal disagreements of the United Methodist Church concerns the theology and ethics of sexual orientation. Albion is committed to maintaining a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students. In light of the diversity of opinion and ongoing discussions within United Methodism about the theology and ethics of homosexual practice, marriage, and ordination (represented by groups such as Reconciling Ministries Network), Albion's faculty does not endorse the teachings of the Book of Discipline on these matters. Instead, the faculty seeks to facilitate fruitful ongoing dialogue about them.
