Our alumni change emails, jobs and locations often making it hard to keep up with them. We have therefore contracted with Harris Connect to update contact information for our alumni so that they can keep up-to-date on news, activities, and events. Harris will also help produce a beautiful hardcover publication that will allow you to reconnect with old friends as well as network professionally.
Harris specializes in alumni and membership publications and the data specifications involved with this type of project. You will be contacted by email and/or regular mail or by phone over the next few months to verify and update your contact and career information. Thank you in advance for your participation.
