Schedule of Events

Thursday, August 25

from Public Affairs & Marketing:

We're continuing our work of updating the style of our faculty and staff photos! The new photos will appear on the campus website and will remain on file in a high resolution format for publicity. We need new photos of ALL faculty and staff. If you haven't had yours taken earlier this summer, please come to

DeWitt Lobby
8:00 am - 4:30 pm

The new style is more contemporary with very flattering lighting. A few other notes that may be helpful as your choose your "look":

  • New photos will show more of you than previous photos (they are less closely cropped). You may wish to wear longer sleeves.
  • The background is a soft gray. You may wish to wear a little color!
    Very pale colors may wash you out a bit.
