The 2016 Mercy College Alumni Directory Project Has Begun!
It’s hard to believe, that we’re coming up on eight years since our last Alumni Directory! My how time flies. So starting in October 2015, we’ve contracted with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI) to print our next directory, due for release in fall 2016.
Starting now, PCI will be contacting nearly 7,000 Mercy College of Health Science alumni via mail, phone and email to request that you update your information. We understand that security and privacy are concerns, but please know that PCI is a trusted partner of Mercy College of Health Sciences.
We haven’t settled on the name of this 3rd Edition of the Mercy College Alumni Directory, but we’re sure you’ll want to be included! As you speak with representatives from PCI, they will also invite your participation in a special fundraising project.
In the last two years, we initiated an international immersion experience to Yucatan, Mexico as part of a class to give our students a global perspective. We were recently approached by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas to join them in another international initiative in Gros Morne, Haiti.
These trips are outstanding learning opportunities, and we’ve established a charitable fund with the Mercy Foundation to provide some financial support to students participating in these trips. Yucatan has been a wonderful experience and we have high hopes for a similar experience in Haiti in 2017. When speaking with the PCI operator, we hope you’ll consider a contribution to the Mercy College Immersion Experience Fund (900-0-4200), to broaden are students understanding of the world.
A Legacy of Alumni Directories
Beginning in 2002, Mercy College released Centuries of Caring, its first attempt to capture the history and legacy of the more than 2,000 alumni of record at the start of the new millennium. In summer 2008, the College released its second edition, Mercy Education – The Healing Touch, to provide an update on the more than 4,000 alumni of record who had been located in the intervening six years.
Both editions are now out of print.
