LIU PARTNERS WITH HARRIS CONNECT FOR ALUMNI DIRECTORY
What is the Alumni Directory?
If you are an alumnus/a of LIU, you may have recently received a postcard, e-mail, or telephone call requesting that you update your contact information for the Alumni Directory. The Alumni Directory will pull together information from LIU alumni around the world, allowing you to connect with one another using the most up-to-date information on hand.The directory will have two components—a bound, hard cover publication with alphabetical listings by region and by school or college and a multimedia searchable CD Rom. Please contact Harris Connect directly at 1-800-729-7411 to update your information!
Why is LIU creating a directory?
As you know, alumni change e-mails, jobs, and locations often, making it hard to keep up with them. We undertake this project every few years to ensure that alumni can use the directory to stay connected to fellow graduates.
Who is LIU partnering with to create the directory?
LIU is partnering with Harris Connect. Harris specializes in alumni and membership publications and the data specifications involved with this type of project.
Will my information be given out or sold to other organizations?
No, your information is made available only to other alumni and staff of LIU.
Does it cost anything to participate?
There is no cost associated with participation—just a few minutes of your time to update your address, phone number, and other relevant contact information.
How will I be contacted?
You will be contacted via postcards and e-mails starting in August 2013. To verify your information and provide an opportunity to purchase the directory you may be contacted again in September. If you are contacted at a time that is inconvenient for you, simply let the representative know. They will give you the Harris Connect toll-free number or will arrange to call you later.
I would like to speak with someone directly.
If you have an inquiry about how to participate, purchase the directory, or stop receiving outreach, please call Harris Connect directly at 1-800-729-7411. To connect with someone at LIU directly, you can e-mail Post-Alumni@liu.edu or call (516) 299-2263.
What if I don't want to be listed? What if I don't want certain pieces of information included?
We will honor your specific requests to exclude part or all of your biographical data from the publication. Even if you choose not to be listed, we hope you'll use this opportunity to update your information with LIU.
When will I receive my directory?
Print directories will be printed and bound in early 2014 and will be available for purchase. CD Roms will also be available at that time. Both will be mailed to you in one package.
If you have any other questions, you may contact Harris Connect at 1-800-729-7411 or the LIU Alumni Office at (516) 299-2263 Thank you!
