Alumni Directory Project

in partnership With PCI, Inc.

About The Project


The 2025 CCNY Alumni Directory project is a collaboration between the Alumni Association of CCNY and Publishing Concepts Inc. (PCI), a family-owned business in Dallas, Texas, to create a membership directory. We do this project, approximately, every 5 years. The directory will include the names and contact information of all participating alumni.
PCI has been publishing directories for educational institutions for almost 100 years, perfecting the art of collecting essential data, gathering stories, and transforming that information into beautiful, four-color hardbound and digital directories. The project allows the Alumni Association of CCNY to update the alumni database (shared with CCNY) and receive important information from their members.
The PCI team will collect until November 29, 2024. After that, they will enter a post-production phase editing the data. We hope to have the hardbound directory distributed in Spring 2025.

PCI Partnership


With our limited resources, we would never be able to tackle a project like this. By partnering with PCI, we are able to access their trained staff of real, live human beings who are excited to listen to what you have to share. PCI will also help collect and assemble the data into the directory that we can share with all alumni. Please note, we have only shared your contact information with PCI in conjunction with this project. We have NOT sold your contact information, or otherwise used it for outside marketing purposes.

What's Next


You will be receiving email and postcard communications from the PCI team with instructions on how to participate.

  1. I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information and said they were working with the Alumni Association of CCNY. Tell me more about the project.
  2. The Alumni Association of CCNY has partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new alumni directory. PCI is a family owned business based in Dallas, TX that has published directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation for over 100 years.
    This project allows CCNY to receive important updates to our database so we can better serve our alumni.


  3. Does the Alumni Association of The City College of New York benefit from this at all?
  4. Yes, in a few different ways:

    a. Updated Information – allows us to effectively communicate with and engage alumni

    b. Legacy – preserves the history of our school

    c. Pride – wearing CCNY apparel shows support and love for our school


  5. Do I Have to Buy Something?
  6. No. This project is being done at NO COST to the Alumni Association of CCNY. The project is completely funded by the alumni who choose to purchase directories. Various packages will be offered, including a digital directory package. PCI will also offer you the option to purchase other CCNY Alumni branded merchandise such as a blanket and pullover, as well as an Alumni Association membership. You are welcome to purchase these items, but you are not required to do so to participate in the project or order the directory. Again, we would never be able to embark on a project like this without the support of our amazing alumni and the partnership with PCI. We sincerely thank every person that participates and chooses to purchase the directory.

  7. How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
  8. PCI is committed to protecting your information.
