Class notes, in print and online, are a way to share what’s going on in your life with your alma mater and classmates. Class Notes rely upon an environment of trust and mutual respect for the rights, differences, and dignity of others; of free expression and inquiry; and with a commitment to truth, excellence, and personal accountability. The views and opinions expressed by alumni are theirs alone, and are not endorsed by and should not be ascribed to UH or UHAA.
By submitting a class note, you agree to the following:
The spirit of these restrictions is to create a positive reading experience for all visitors.
We have implemented automated measures to detect submissions that may violate these terms. Any submission flagged by these measures is held for review before it can become publicly visible. We try to review submissions promptly during normal business hours, but cannot guarantee a turnaround time.
If you see any content you believe to be in violation of these policies, please contact us at Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We ask for your email address and phone number so that we can contact you if we have any questions. We do not share this information with parties outside the UH community.
All notes are considered for publication in AlumLine or other university publications. However, we do not guarantee inclusion, neither in a particular issue nor at any time. Submissions that are included may be edited to fit the allotted space.
Our editors may select a handful of notes of special interest for highlighting, either online or in print. Selections are at the sole discretion of our editors.
We may revise these policies at any time, and reserve the right to modify or discontinue services.
