MACOMB, IL - - The Western Illinois University Alumni Association has announced the launch of the 2024 Western Illinois University Alumni Directory Project, a collaborative effort with Publishing Concepts (PCI).

"We are pleased to announce the partnership between the WIU Alumni Association and our Office of Alumni Relations once again with PCI, based out of Texas, on the 2024 WIU Alumni Directory Project," Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations Amy Spelman said.

WIU graduates will be contacted over the next six months via postcard and email by PCI asking for their participation in the upcoming alumni directory. The project will provide important updates to our database in order to better serve our alumni, to allow for more improved communication and engagement and to enhance the University's national rankings.

"We've assembled the information we currently have on file and now ask WIU graduates to confirm the accuracy and fill in any information gaps," Spelman said. "So many of our graduates have been engaged with Western over the years, but there may be some individual information missing that would help us provide better opportunities for our graduates to remain active with their alma mater. We always appreciate knowing where our alumni live and work, and we are also interested in knowing about their successes so we can share them with our students, as well as find ways to communicate better with our alumni."

During the verification process, graduates will have the opportunity to confirm their data and provide any additional information that may be missing. They will also be given the options of purchasing a printed or digital directory and WIU merchandise, with no obligation to purchase either.

"To verify data, we encourage those who have received the postcard or email to call the number listed, as each person has received a personal invitation ID#," Spelman said. "If you recently verified your alumni data, thank you for your assistance."
