Photography at WMU

Marketing and Strategic Communications is committed to developing a distinct photographic style for WMU.

When evaluating custom photography requests, preference is given to subjects and images that tell WMU’s most compelling stories and express the brand’s promise of supporting individual purpose, career success and well-being. Images should highlight our University’s momentum and unique differentiators, and position us as a first choice for students, donors, talent and policy-makers.
