When To Schedule for a New Headshot
Following are the acceptable and preferred methods for the database photographs:
- A photograph taken by Photography and Multimedia within the past five years.
- Portraits older than five years will be scheduled and retaken by Photography and Multimedia.
- For individuals who cannot come to campus, a placeholder will be used indicating that no photograph is available.
Individuals who do not want an image to appear on the USI website or in publications must complete an opt-out form. (use your USI credentials to log in)
Due to issues with size, quality and consistency, submitted headshots - personal or professional - will not be accepted for the USI headshot database. Questions can be directed to the Director of University Communications, John Farless, contact: 812-228-5157 or firstname.lastname@example.org
