Alumni Relations publishes new directory
The 2001 Gallaudet University Alumni Directory, which gives current information on 10,121 alumni, has been published by Bernard C. Harris Publishing Co., Inc., of Norfolk, Va.
The third edition of the comprehensive directory is divided into four sectionsóBiographical, Class Year, Geographical, and Career Networkingóand includes individualsí names, maiden names where applicable, class years and degrees earned, job titles, company names, residence and e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and names of spouses and children.
"We are delighted to make this book available to alumni and University departments, and we are sure our alumni and colleagues will find the directory to be a useful resource or reference book," said Alumni Relations Director Mary Anne Pugin.
The directory took a year to prepare, and is the result of a total of 2,361 updates from paper and online questionnaires that were completed by alumni and returned to the publisher. This represents a 24 percent response rate; Harris reported that the average rate is 20 percent. Additionally, approximately 2,350 records were updated by a phone survey conducted by Harris.
To date, over 1,400 alumni have ordered the directory in book and/or CD-ROM format.
Alumni Relations still has a limited number of directories available for purchase by alumni for $55, including shipping.
