The Office of Alumni Relations and Marketing has a collection of high-quality photos taken by the University photographer for design needs. Please contact Amy Coughenour at (269) 387-5964 to request photos. Please also contact the office to schedule a photo shoot for upcoming press or promotional materials.

Video production

The communications team can advise on video projects in terms of best practices, storyboarding and editing. Please contact us to meet about your video project.

Note: If you are using music in a video, you may want to consider using royalty-free music or purchasing stock music for your production. Use of many songs requires purchasing the rights to the music in order to share the work publicly as a part of your video and may be cost prohibitive. Contact the communications team if you have questions about music use in video productions.
