Global Navigation for Teacher role only?

I vaguely remember seeing some CSS or JS trick to have a global icon only visible for a specific role, but I can't seem to find that thread anymore.  Does anyone have info on this - either the trick itself or link to previous threads about this topic?

The use case is a link to our syllabus creation/guideline page, but only visible to our faculty and not to students.

We use a conditional statement in our JS to tailor links presented to the users course role; the global option stays the same for everyone.  A pitfall to this is if a user is in the teacher role anywhere in the instance, links presented will always be what is curated for teachers.  It seems to work well for us so far, though...

Thanks!  Still testing, but it seemed to work for our use case!
