It’s Not A Scam!
You may have received or will be receiving a postcard and/or email asking you to update your alumni information. This is not a scam! FAU is current engaged in a project to update and verify alumni data and produce the first Alumni Directory in over 10 years. We have partnered with PCI to help us with this project. When you update your information please know it is for FAU information only and is not being sold or shared in any way outside FAU. When you call to update, if you are interested you will have the opportunity to purchase the future alumni directory and additional alumni swag! Thank you for taking the time to update your information for this very important Alumni Directory project.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for FAU Alumni Association. Is this a legitimate project or is it a scam?
FAU Alumni Association is excited to partner with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to publish the 2019 FAU Alumni Directory. This project is important to FAU because it allows us to better communicate with our alumni. Of course, we want to know where our alumni live and work, but we are also interested in knowing about your successes. This updated information helps us to:
Keep you connected via FAU events
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 funding
Increase recognition of our military and veterans
