Photo and Videotape

These spaces include, but are not limited to, classrooms, labs, dining spaces, walkways and outdoor spaces, athletic events, and other university activities.

PLU reserves the right to use these photos and videos in the promotion of the University. Students who enroll at PLU do so with the understanding that photos and video of them taken in PLU public community spaces may be used in university publications, newspapers, web, social media, and other communication mediums that may be utilized for promotional purposes. Student public directory information may also be released when describing student involvement in academic and extracurricular activities.
