We are excited to announce that a new Alumni Directory will be coming your way in 2016. In order for this to occur, an alumni survey will be completed over the next few weeks/months to secure updated alumni information. We want to celebrate who you are, where you are, and what you do. This survey will be completed and managed by Publishing Concepts (PCI). PCI will be contacting our alumni by mail, email, and/or telephone during this process. You will be invited to purchase a Directory. We want to say “thank you” in advance for your participation in this survey to insure your information is correctly included in our new Alumni Directory. There will be a special Career Networking section included in this edition.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the Alumni Relations office or you may contact the PCI Customer Service Help Desk at 1-800-395-4724.

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 Indiana 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 Indiana 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.

  1. How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?

Indiana Wesleyan University has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:

Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Indiana Wesleyan University any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Indiana Wesleyan University or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
