Alumni Directory FAQ

  1. I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for The University of Texas at Dallas. 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 that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows The University of Texas at Dallas to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better serve you and future alumni.

    Yes, in a few ways:

    3. Revenue – Generate non-dues revenue for alumni programs
