Project conducted by PCI in partnership with the Tuskegee University Office of Alumni Affairs
The 'Skegee experience is like none other!! Alums from across the country say they have had the experience of a lifetime during their years on the campus of Tuskegee University. There were so many acquaintances made, so many new friends gained, so many ideas created, and so many memories shared. But, you just had to be there! This Oral History Project gives our alumni a chance to tell their unique story in their own words.
After the collection is complete, these unique stories will be compiled into a book full of captured memories of our students, and celebrating our treasured time together at our historic alma mater.
We want to give you the opportunity to share your story. The Tuskegee University Office of Alumni Affairs has partnered with Publishing Concepts, Inc., (PCI) to collect stories of your unique experiences, and to update biographic information of our alumni in order to bring our records up-to-date.
PCI will be sending postcards and emails to our alumni with instructions on how to share your story. Just follow the steps to update your information, and set up a time to share your story with one of the staff members.
If you did not receive a postcard or email, you may call in your response via this telephone number: 334-727-8521.

We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce an Oral History Publication for Tuskegee University. PCI is a family-owned business based in Dallas, TX that has published directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation for over 100 years. This project allows us to hear about your personal experiences from your time at Tuskegee University and how the school helped to shape your life since then. And, while we have you on the phone, we want to make sure your contact information is up to date.
