Frequently, the Alumni Relations Office is contacted by alumni and students with requests for alumni contact information. The college seeks to protect the privacy of both its alumni and students, but also recognizes the value in encouraging and supporting the networking of alumni and students.
This policy seeks to inform alumni and students of the college's policy on sharing of contact information.
The Alumni Relations Office will provide limited information on selected alumni when such requests do not violate confidentiality.
The granting of requests must comply with FERPA and other federal and state privacy laws.
Alumni requests for contact information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the purpose for the request and the information sought.
Requests for "lists" of alumni for non-college (commercial or non-commercial) use will not be granted. Requests for the contact information of individuals that has been designated as confidential will not be granted. The list must not be used for charitable, commercial, political or professional use.
The director and staff will consider requests. They may first suggest that alumni look up contact information themselves by using the Alumni Directory.
Student requests for alumni contact information:
The Alumni Relations Director shall oversee this policy and review it at least once every two years. Changes to this policy shall be made in accordance with the college's Policy on Policies.
