The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Alumni Association is excited to team up with Publishing Concepts, Inc. to produce an alumni directory. Over the next couple of months, PCI will be contacting University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio alumni and friends via mail, phone, and email to request that you update your information so you can stay connected.
We hope that you will participate in our alumni directory project. For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. 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, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows the Graduate School to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our alumni and how we can better serve you and future alumni.
How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
We have a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
a. The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences 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.
b. The Directory will be made available only to alumni of the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to University of Texas any and all electronic files that have been supplied by University of Texas or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
I would like to verify and update my information. How may I do this?
If you have received a postcard or an email with a telephone number, you may call the number to speak with a dedicated representative for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed.
If you have received an email with an embedded link, you may go to the online site to review your information. If you have questions, you may call PCI’s customer service desk at 1.800.395.4724.
Can anyone purchase a directory?
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences directory is available for sale only to GSBS alumni.
When will I receive my directory?
The total duration of the directory project is about 12 months.
Can I choose some or all of my information not to be printed in the directory?
When you call to update your information, you can tell the representative what information you would prefer to have excluded. You may also communicate this information to the PCI customer service desk (1.800.395.4724) or to the Alumni Association.
I ordered a directory/package over the phone and would like to cancel my order. How do I do this?
Call the PCI customer service help desk at 1.800.395.4724, and they will take care of this for you.
