Harris Connect Alumni Directory

The alumni relations office has partnered with Harris Connect to publish a newly updated alumni directory. Based on feedback from our previous directory project with another vendor, we have selected Harris to provide us with this important service. The project will feature the most up-to-date alumni listings, career information, and geographic sections, along with photos and essays submitted by Jaspers. It will be available in both book and CD form. Outreach by Harris will begin in the coming months and we ask for your cooperation with responding so that the directory becomes a great and reliable resource for all of our graduates. Thank you in advance for helping make this publication a success.
