Alumni Directory Project
The Alumni Directory Project is now closed. If you purchased a directory, it will be sent to you in December 2018. Thank you for participating!
The Teachers College Alumni Association is excited to announce the launch of our final printed Alumni Directory Project to celebrate the end of our Where the Future Comes First capital campaign. Over the next several months, Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), our partner on the project, will be contacting 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!
Frequently Asked Questions
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 Teachers College, Columbia 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 Teachers College, Columbia 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.
2. How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
Teachers College, Columbia University, has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
a. The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by Teachers College, Columbia 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 Teachers College, Columbia University. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Teachers College, Columbia University, any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Teachers College, Columbia University, or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
3. 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 Teachers College, Columbia University, project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed.
If you have received an email with an embedded link, you may go to the online site to review your information. If you have questions, you may call PCI’s customer service desk at (866) 647-1427.
