The alumni directory offers the ability for all alumni to suppress publication of their data on a field-by-field basis.

This directory is for official School use and also for individual communication of a personal nature between the members listed herein. Use of this directory for any other purpose, including but not limited to, reproducing and storing in a retrieval system by any means, electronic or mechanical; photocopying; or using the addresses or other information contained in this directory for any private, commercial or political mailing is strictly prohibited.

The information on this site will not be used for any commercial or philanthropic purpose not directly connected with and approved by the School; nor will copies be made; nor will the original information or facsimile be given, lent, or sold to any other individual or organization.
