Policy On Sharing Information About Alumni
The mission of the Office of Alumni Affairs is to provide effective communication between the College and her alumni and facilitate increased alumni interaction in the life of the College. As a part of that mission, the office maintains a database of personal information on alumni including, but not limited to, information on profession, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. This information allows the College to maintain effective contact with her alumni.
In accordance with the Gentleman’s Rule, the Office of Alumni Affairs honors requests for addresses, phone numbers, mailing lists, and similar contact information with the expressed understanding that the information will be used only to foster stronger personal relationships among alumni and with the College. The same understanding applies to information available in the published Alumni Directory and in the Alumni eServices on-line directory.
Information on Wabash College alumni obtained from the Office of Alumni Affairs, from the Alumni Directory, or from the Alumni eServices on-line directory is not to be used for commercial or personal for-profit endeavors or to solicit support for any non-profit activity other than Wabash College.
