Alumni History Project



John Brown University invites all Alumni to participate in the creation of an oral history publication that unites John Brown University Alumni across generations.  The project is an opportunity to gather stories and collect memories that bring the John Brown University experience to life.  We are interested in your reflections and tributes, and we hope that this endeavor will preserve John Brown University’s history for generations to come.

PCI Partnership

John Brown University has partnered with Publishing Concepts (PCI) to gain access to its experienced, trained staff.  PCI associates will listen to your stories and assemble information into a publication.  To help you stay connected to John Brown University, PCI will also verify and update contact information if you have moved or recently lost touch.  Please note that we have only shared your contact information with PCI in conjunction with this project.  We have NOT sold your personal information or otherwise used it for outside marketing purposes.
