Campus Photography & Videography Policy

McDaniel College reserves the right to photograph/videotape students, staff or faculty for the purposes of institutional promotion. When possible, McDaniel observes the common practice among colleges of obtaining individual permissions for the use of campus photographs/videos in which individuals are featured prominently as the subject. However, permissions are not obtained for the use of student, staff or faculty images in photographs/videos of public events on campus, such as but not limited to rehearsals, performances, lectures, readings, athletic events, student life events, alumnae/i events, and college ceremonies. Academic departments such as but not limited to theatre, art, and English also reserve the right to photograph/videotape students and their work for institutional use. At any time, photography/videography may be occurring on the McDaniel College campus and incidental footage of individuals who are not McDaniel College students, staff or faculty may be obtained. By entering campus property, individuals grant permission for use to McDaniel College in such circumstances. Questions about this policy should be directed to
