Carolina students are known for traveling the world, so it’s no surprise that most of them move away from Chapel Hill after graduation. Keeping up with where UNC’s nearly 250,000 alumni live is the job of the GAA’s Records Department.
About every five years, the GAA publishes a printed directory that includes the known addresses of UNC’s living alumni. The most recent directory was published in 2002.
To compile the upcoming directory, all alumni will be contacted – by phone, e-mail and mail – over the next few months to verify and update contact and career information. Alumni may also contact Harris Connect at their toll-free number: (800) 598-4363.
The GAA is partnering with Harris Connect to produce the directory. Alumni with e-mail addresses may receive e-mail messages titled “University of North Carolina Alumni Update Request” from a Harris Connect account that allow the recipient to update alumni profile information from a secure Web site.
The 2007 edition of the directory is scheduled for release in July. A CD version also will be offered.
The GAA also maintains an online alumni directory, where all alumni can update their records.GAA members have full access to the online directory as a benefit of GAA membership.
