Alumni Directory Project
A Timeless Publication
The Texas Tech Alumni Association is excited to partner with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to publish the 2015 Texas Tech Alumni Directory. Texas Tech publishes an alumni directory every five years and we will be working on the new project from September 2013 through August 2014.
This project is of utmost importance to Texas Tech University because it allows us to better communicate with our alumni. Of course we want to know where our alumni live and work, but we also are interested in knowing about your successes.
This updated information is essential to our ability to:
- Keep you connected via invitations to Texas Tech events in your local area
- Help students select their areas of study through success stories like yours
- Improve the university’s college rankings
- Improve the university’s accreditation scores
- Increase the amount of grant funds
If you are an alumnus/a of Texas Tech University, you might have recently received a postcard, email or telephone call requesting that you update your contact information for the Texas Tech Alumni Association Directory project. We undertake this popular project every few years and have received many comments from satisfied alumni who use the directory to stay connected to old friends and new contacts.
We take your privacy seriously.
Be assured that these are legitimate communications from the Texas Tech Alumni Association, sent through our trusted partner, PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) in Dallas.
Samples of the postcard and email are included below.
We understand security and privacy are concerns, but please know that PCI is a trusted partner of the Texas Tech Alumni Association. PCI has roots in the publishing business for more than 85 years and dates back to the nation’s first publisher of alumni directories, Rockwell F. Clancy Company. PCI has been incorporated under the PCI name since 1982 and is a privately held, family-run business.

Texas Tech publishes an alumni directory every five years with our last directory being the 2010 edition. Here are some important questions and answers related to the current project.
I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for Texas Tech University. 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 us to better serve you and future alumni.

How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
The Texas Tech Alumni Association has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by The Texas Tech Alumni Association 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.
The directory will be made available only to alumni of Texas Tech University. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to the Texas Tech Alumni Association any and all electronic files that have been supplied by the Texas Tech Alumni Association or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the directory.
Can anyone purchase a directory?
The Texas Tech University alumni directory is available for sale only to Texas Tech University alumni.
When will I receive my directory?
The total duration of the directory project is about 12 months. Since we began the project in September of 2013, the directories will be distributed in September of 2014.
I ordered a package containing the Discounted Companion Airline Certificate, but I haven’t received the post card requesting verification of my address.
