PCI – Alumni Data Project

PCI Alumni Directory

The STU Alumni Association has partnered with Publishing Concepts (PCI) to launch an alumni directory project. Through your participation, we hope to update thousands of records, allowing us, and you, to connect with alumni. Thank you for answering the call, and assisting us with this important project.
