2018 Boston College Alumni Association Directory Project
We know how much our alumni like to reconnect with old friends and find new contacts. That’s why we’ve partnered with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI) to launch a project that will enable us to create a new alumni directory for you. Please help by responding to PCI’s mail, emails, or calls asking for your updated contact information in the coming weeks. Thank you in in advance for helping us help you stay connected to your Boston College family.
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 Boston College. 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 Boston College 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?
Boston College has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
a.) The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by Boston College 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 Boston College. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Boston College any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Boston College 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 Boston College project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed. One of the numbers for the Boston College alumni is 617-552-3440.
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 Boston College Alumni Directory is available for sale only to Boston College alumni.
When will I receive my directory?
The total duration of the directory project is about 12 months. Since we began the project in March 2018, the directories will be distributed in March 2019.
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 Boston College Alumni Association.
I ordered a directory/package over the phone and would like to cancel my order. How do I do this?
