2020 UNT Alumni Directory

 

What is the UNT Alumni Directory?

The UNT Alumni Alumni Association publishes an updated alumni directory every five years. We are currently working with our publishing partner PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to generate the 2020 UNT Alumni Directory. 

The first phase of our 2020 directory is the alumni census effort. Our trusted partner PCI will contact all UNT alumni to request updated contact information. We encourage you to repond to PCI to help us keep our alumni records accurate.

Accurate alumni data is essential for our ability to:

  • Communicate with UNT alumni concerning their official records
  • Keep alumni updated on the latest UNT news
  • Connect alumni to events in their local area
  • Improve the university’s college rankings
  • Improve the university’s accreditation scores
  • Increase the amount of grant funds
  • Establish a mentor/mentee network
  • Establish an directory of alumni-owned busesses

 

How does the UNT Alumni Association protect my privacy?

We understand security and privacy are concerns. That is why your contact information will only be listed in the alumni directory with your consent. We also maintain a contract with PCI to ensure that your data will be returned ONLY to UNT. It will not be sold to any third party.

Rest assured that PCI is a trusted partner of the UNT Alumni Association. PCI has roots in the publishing business for more than 90 years and dates back to the nation’s first publisher of alumni directories, Rockwell F. Clancy Company. PCI has been incorporated under the PCI name since 1982 and is a privately held, family run business.

Directory FAQ

I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for the UNT Alumni Association. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam? 

We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our 2020 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 the UNT Alumni Association 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? 

The UNT Alumni Association has a contractual agreement with PCI that states: 

a. The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by the UNT Alumni Association 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 UNT. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to the UNT Alumni Association any and all electronic files that have been supplied to The UNT Alumni Association or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
