Alumni Directory Project (PCI)
You are here
1986. . . Ronald W. Reagan was President, the Space Shuttle Challenger blew up 73 seconds after takeoff, Top Gun was the #1 movie, and Everybody was "Walk(ing) Like and Egyptian" thanks to the Bangles hit song. 1986 was also the last time that Kansas Wesleyan University published an updated Alumni Directory. I am pleased to report that Kansas Wesleyan University has a signed contract with Publishing Concepts (PCI) to launch a new KWU Alumni Directory. We don't have the staff resources to contact all 10,000+ alumni, and PCI is a trusted, well-established company that universities across Kansas and the entire country contract with to produce directories. They are friendly, professional, and their turnaround time is quick.
In addition to producing a wonderful directory, this project will help us update our database with current information so you don't miss out on any news from your alma mater! We need your help. Within the month, you will receive a postcard from PCI. Please take the time to verify your address and information. For additional information about this important project, please refer to the Freqently Asked Questions below:
Frequently Asked Questions By Alumni
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 Kansas Wesleyan 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 Kansas Wesleyan 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?
Kansas Wesleyan University has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
a. The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by Kansas Wesleyan 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 Kansas Wesleyan University. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Kansas Wesleyan University any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Kansas Wesleyan University or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
