2020 Alumni Directory

Drake University alumni are invited to participate in our Alumni Directory project by submitting updated contact information. We are partnering with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to collect and update information of our more that 75,000 alumni worldwide. Printed directories will be made available to alumni.

The directory provides an opportunity for you to connect with fellow Bulldogs. With updated information, our office will also be better equipped to communicate and engage with alumni.

Watch for postcards in the mail and emails with instructions on how to submit your information. Thank you for helping us keep our database up to date!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Drake has partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new alumni directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, Texas that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation.
