Reporting, Filming and Photography on Campus
To protect the privacy of our students, a growing number of whom are minors taking college courses during their high school years and to promote and further our main mission of education, the following rules apply to filming and photography on campus:
- Minors may not be included in video or photography without the written consent of the parents on file with the university. This also pertains to campus-sponsored community events.
- Campus officials reserve the right to ask the media to move their interviewing or filming to another area of the building(s) if it becomes disruptive or interferes with privacy issues.
- Filming and photographing action shots of sports games is permitted.
Faculty members are generally available to assist the media with stories related to their areas of research or expertise. Please contact the marketing and public relations director for assistance in this matter.
