Alumni Directory

CCSU is working with Harris Connect in producing an alumni directory scheduled for publication in October. Over the next several months, you may receive postcards, emails or phone calls from Harris asking for updated contact information. We would appreciate your cooperation in updating your contact information. All updates are returned to CCSU so that our database remains current.

Harris Connect is only collecting information for purposes of the directory. Your information will not be released to any third parties. You decide whether or not your personal information is published in the directory-make your wishes clear to the representative with whom you speak. It is a great way to stay connected to the CCSU alumni community!

All alumni who have updated their information online will be contacted by Harris Connect to verify their information. This step is necessary to ensure the integrity of our records as well as the quality of the Alumni Directory.
