Alumni Directory Project

Important Tiffin University Directory Project Underway…

Staying connected to our alumni is very important to us. Tiffin University is launching an alumni data verification project in late-April. To make this a successful project, we are partnering with a nationally recognized publishing firm, Publishing Concepts (PCI), to help us reach out to alumni near and far.

Starting this month, you will receive communication from Publishing Concepts, letting you know how to participate in the project and update your educational, professional and contact information. The last Tiffin University alumni directory was published over five years ago, and we look forward to completing this project by April 2021.

We understand security and privacy are concerns, but please know that PCI is a trusted partner of Tiffin University.

Up-to-date information is vital for us to connect alumni with former classmates and friends, and we want to be sure that you receive the latest news and invitations to our events.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at 419.448.3595 or wilkinsvm@tiffin.edu.
