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 Mississippi University for Women. 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, Texas, that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation. This project allows Mississippi University for Women to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better serve you.

 

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

 

Mississippi University for Women has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
a. The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by Mississippi University for Women 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 Mississippi University for Women. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to Mississippi University for Women any and all electronic files that have been supplied by Mississippi University for Women 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 Mississippi University for Women 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 Mississippi University for Women Alumni Directory is available for sale only to Mississippi University for Women alumni.

 

When will I receive my directory?

 

The total duration of the directory project is about 12 months. The directories will be distributed in the late summer of 2019.

 

Can I choose some or all of my information to be excluded from 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 at 1.800.982.1590 or to the Office of Alumni and Development at 1.662.329.7295.

 

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.

 

What if I have other questions?
