Sacred Heart University is excited to announce the launch of a printed Alumni Directory. Over the next several months, Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), our partner on the project, will be contacting you, our alumni, to request that you update your information. The information you provide will be invaluable – both for us, as we’ll be able to stay in touch with you more effectively, and for your classmates, who will be better able to connect with you. We hope that you will support this effort and participate!
We understand that you might not want to provide your contact information to just anyone. We want you to know that the request for information is legitimate, and it is safe to share your information with PCI.
If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact Carla Murphy at email@example.com or 203-365-7511.
Below is a list of frequently asked questions regarding the directory:
Frequently Asked Questions
- I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for Sacred Heart University. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?
We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new alumni directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows Sacred Heart University to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better serve you and future alumni.
- How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
Sacred Heart University has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
a.) The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by Sacred Heart University for the publication of the Directory will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the Directory and except as required by court order or law.
b.)The Directory will be made available only to alumni of Sacred Heart University. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Sacred Heart University any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Sacred Heart University or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
- I would like to verify and update my information. How may I do this?
If you have received a postcard or an email with a telephone number, you may call the number to speak with a dedicated representative for the Sacred Heart University project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed.
