Frequently Asked Questions
We have collaborated with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce an Oral History Publication for The Rhode Island College Alumni Association. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation. This project allows the RIC Alumni Association to hear about your personal experiences and explain how Rhode Island College has helped shape your lives.
Yes, in a few different ways:
- Legacy – Preserves the oral history of our school
- Updated Information – Allows us to effectively communicate with and engage alumni
- Pride – Sharing the printed book and merchandise associated with it shows support and love for our school
However, the college or Alumni Association does not make any profit from this project, unless you choose to support the Alumni Association with an additional donation.
The Rhode Island College Alumni Association has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
"The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by the Rhode Island College Alumni Association for the publication of the Oral History Publication will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the Oral History Publication and except as required by court order or law."
The Oral History Publication will be made available only to alumni of Rhode Island College. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to the Rhode Island College Alumni Association any and all electronic files that have been supplied by The Alumni Association or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Oral History Publication."
You will receive an email prior to publication that will allow you to review your transcribed story and make any edits.
The Rhode Island College Alumni Association Oral History Publication is available for sale only to RIC alumni.
