Priority 1

Public Affairs coordinates, funds and manages the photography.

  • Any event or photo that marks a milestone in University history, culture or image.
    • groundbreaking
    • major donations
    • new partnerships
    • any event for the President, VIPs or dignitaries as appropriate
  • VIPs or dignitaries as a guest or major speaker (Board of Trustee member, donor, legislator, etc.)
  • Photos of campus, student life, buildings, etc., that will be used in high-profile publications and have the potential for multiple uses and repurposing. This will be determined by Public Affairs.  

Priority 2

Public Affairs advises and manages the photography. If the University Photographer is unavailable, the client pays for a freelance photographer.

  • Events such as luncheons or banquets where FAU dignitaries may be in attendance but are not guest speakers (potential for a press release and/or society page photo opportunity).
  • Photography with limited use University-wide.

 Priority 3

Public Affairs offers a list of photographers. The client manages and funds the project.

  • Events and receptions where FAU dignitaries are not scheduled to attend
  • Events that do not have University-wide significance
  • Photos with limited long-term use

 Official campus photographs can be found in our Photo Gallery
