Photo Opt-Out Policy

Converse University takes pictures and video around campus and at many University events throughout the year. This media is published in a variety of manners including the University’s print publications, print and digital advertisements, the Converse website, and on Converse social media channels for purposes of education, publicity, and student recruitment.

Should a student not wish to be photographed or recorded by a Converse University photographer, or have their name or biographical information used in connection with any such media, they must submit the Opt Out Request Form with an attached current photograph to the Office of Communications. Students who submit opt out notice are also responsible for removing themselves from areas in which photography and/or recording is taking place, or notifying the photographer of their opt out status. Failure to do so may result in that individual's inclusion in a photograph or recording and will be treated as consent for the University to use that media accordingly. The Opt Out Request Form can be found online at

Images and videos taken in public spaces and/or at public events do not require authorization for publication. Your presence in or around university facilities and/or properties, as well as at off-campus University-sponsored events, constitutes your consent to the capture and/or use of your image and/or voice by Converse University, and waives any claims or rights, whether in law or in equity.

When an opt-out request is on file, Converse University will make every effort to honor that student's opt-out status, even in public spaces or at public events.
