POLICY ON ALUMNI, DONOR INFO REVISED
If you're in an office that frequently gets or makes requests for alumni or donor information, you might want to brush up on a recently revised university policy that provides guidelines on the release of information. Here are a few examples:
Alumni seeking the address or phone number of a college friend must submit a written request and a stamped envelope (with no address) to the ISU Foundation Records office. The request will be mailed to the individual for whom information has been sought, and he or she will decide whether to make the contact.
University officials seeking information about alumni and donors may receive that information if it is for such purposes as newsletters, surveys, holiday cards, directories, reunions, receptions and honors. Information also may be released for solicitation, but such activities must be carried out through the Iowa State Foundation.
To obtain a copy of the ISU Foundation policy on release of alumni and donor information, contact the Foundation Records office at 4-6471.
