Alumnae are invited to share their Mount Saint Mary’s stories for a book that will preserve the rich history of our beloved institution, as told by those who have lived it. With more than 23,000 alumnae and so many inspiring professors and Sisters through the years, what better way to recognize our impact as a community than to share our personal narratives.

How it Works

PCI Partnership

To support our effort to capture your Mount stories, Mount Saint Mary’s is partnering with Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI), whose trained staff will work with us to interview you. PCI will collect and assemble the stories into a Mount Saint Mary’s University Oral History Book. The collection of stories will be available for purchase from PCI.  

Please note, we have only shared your contact information with PCI for this project. We have NOT sold your contact information. 

What happens when I call PCI?

  1. PCI will verify your contact information
  2. They will ask you about your Mount experience
  3. PCI will invite you to purchase the Oral History Project book and MSMU gear

Note: You do not need to buy anything to participate. 

What will they ask me? 

They will ask you a variety of questions which may include: 

  • What inspired you to attend the Mount? 
  • How has the Mount impacted your life? 
  • Were you on campus during a historical moment? 
  • How did your Mount experience empower you? 
  • What does the Mount mean to you? 

Do I have to buy something?

No. This project is being done at no cost to Mount Saint Mary’s. The project is completely funded by the alumnae who choose to purchase the Mount Saint Mary’s Oral History book that will be produced at the end of the project. Several book packages will be offered including an option to purchase Mount Saint Mary’s merchandise. You are not required to purchase a book to participate.

What’s Next?

You will receive email and postcard communication from PCI with instructions on how to participate. The PCI team will collect stories until October 2021. After that, they will enter a post-production phase editing the data. We hope to have the book distributed in May 2022.

Contact Information

To participate in sharing your story, please reach out to PCI at 1-877-582-3192 for an interview.
