Public Relations Policy

In an effort to promote Huntington University, University Relations frequently disseminates information, including photographs, regarding activities on campus to the media as well as to the general public through the University's website and social media. This information includes, but is not limited to, graduation announcements; athletic, theatre and music involvements; general campus photos; and images from various activities on campus.

University Relations only releases information designated as directory information by the University. University Relations may release directory information to the media and publish that same information on the University's website without the student's prior consent. (See Student Records and Privacy for a definition of directory information.) Permission is required, however, for photos or videos of subjects who are primarily being featured in advertisements or promotions, in which a person's name, image and/or likeness are being used in the context that implies endorsement. Persons may request that information not be disclosed to the media or placed on the website by completing a request in the University Relations office.

All information, photographs and graphics generated by University Relations are property of the University and must be used within the guidelines in which they are released. "Huntington University" is a registered trademark protected by Federal law. The name, logo and symbols of the University may only be used in connection with officially-sanctioned activities, functions and events, and may not be used in any manner contrary to the University's mission and Community Life Agreement. Any use of "Huntington University" or any form thereof on any social media sites must be approved by a member of the University's Administration or University Relations, and full editing rights must be provided to at least one of those members. Social media sites include but are not limited to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Skype, YouTube, LinkedIn, and SnapChat.
