We help our clients find their people, learn about their people, engage their people, and share their people’s stories.
For nearly 100 years, Publishing Concepts (PCI) has partnered with colleges, universities, fraternities, sororities, public and private high schools, and associations and service organizations of all sorts to engage their alumni and membership. We are able to connect with members, update and expand their personal profiles, learn about their lives, and collect their stories. We collect data and stories, publish directories and oral history projects, implement fundraising programs, and share member stories across your community. The valuable information we glean can be used across organizational departments – for outreach, fundraising, programming, marketing, you name it.
The Oral History Project
What if you said to your alumni, "Tell me your story?"
Our experience has shown us that alumni are often approached in a transactional, data-driven way. We created The Oral History Project as a fresh approach to alumni engagement...through storytelling. We collect and preserve alumni stories, at scale, and help you share them at no cost.
Schools want to connect with their alumni in a meaningful way. They want to find fresh ways to engage them to make them feel valued and involved.
Alumni have stories to tell. They have experiences to share. Giving them an opportunity to reflect upon and relive their stories is immensely rewarding. For everyone.
Sharing the stories of your alumni is a celebration of them, and of you. The experiences they had on your campus shaped them and set them on their life's course. They are a part of your history and should live on.
