The OU Alumni Association strives to keep our alumni connected to the University and to each other. In order to do this, we have authorized Publishing Concepts (PCI) to launch a project to update contact information for all OU Alumni and to create a new alumni directory.
Starting soon, you will receive e-mails, postcards and phone calls from PCI requesting that you update your contact information. We encourage you to respond to these communications. Once PCI has collected the information, they will compile the data to produce a new alumni directory.
PCI is a longtime, trusted partner of the OU Alumni Association. We are excited to collaborate with PCI again as it has been more than seven years since we’ve had an alumni directory available. We hope you will participate in this exciting alumni directory project!
If you have any questions, please contact the OU Alumni Association at 405-325-1710 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
OU Alumni 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 University of Oklahoma. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?
The OU Alumni Association has 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 us 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?
Our contractual agreement with PCI that states:
The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by University of Oklahoma 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.
The directory will be made available only to alumni of University of Oklahoma. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to University of Oklahoma any and all electronic files that have been supplied by University of Oklahoma 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 University of Oklahoma 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 1.800.982.1590.
Can anyone purchase a directory?
The University of Oklahoma Alumni Directory is available for sale only to University of Oklahoma alumni.
When will I receive my directory?
The total duration of the directory project is about 12 months. Since we began the project in June 2017 the directories will be distributed in June 2018.
Can I choose some or all of my information not to be printed in the directory?
When you call to update your information, you can tell the representative what information you would prefer to have excluded. You may also communicate this information to the PCI customer service desk (1.800.982.1590) or to the Alumni Association.
I ordered a directory/package over the phone and would like to cancel my order. How do I do this?
Call the PCI customer service help desk at 1.800.982.1590, and they will take care of this for you.
