Mount Mary University Directory Project
We are excited to announce that we are publishing an alumni directory and have contracted
with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), a reputable publisher that works with many colleges
and universities nationwide to provide professional data verification services. Over
the next few months, PCI will be contacting alumnae/i by mail, phone, and email to
request that you update your information to help you stay connected with Mount Mary
University. We hope you will participate in our alumnae/i directory project.
If you have questions for PCI, you may call their customer service desk at 1-800-982-1590. You may also send them an email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
