SIU Alumni Oral History Project

SIU Alumni Association, PCI Oral History Book

Share YOUR stories with Salukis everywhere! The SIU Alumni Association has partnered with Publishing Concepts, Inc. to collect stories from alumni to create a unique oral history archive.

The publication will unite SIU alumni across generations, careers, geography, and life experiences. By sharing memories of how your SIU degree has impacted you, you’ll ensure that the rich history of Southern Illinois University Carbondale will be preserved for the future.

Publishing Concepts, Inc. will be contacting you by mail, phone, and email starting in December 2023 asking you to participate. Thank you for telling your Salukis stories!



Publishing Concepts Inc. partners with academic institutions and service organizations to engage alumni and members to update records and collect stories.

Both large state universities and small private colleges across the country have partnered with PCI on projects that gather data, collect stories, and assist in philanthropy.

To date, PCI has helped more than 300 colleges and universities reconnect with alumni through the Oral History Project. The goal of these projects is to capture the stories and memories of alumni, preserving them before they are gone.
