Photo/Video Release Policy

Randolph College (“Randolph”) uses photographs, photographic images, names, and audio and video recordings of employees and students for general publicity in publications, on its website, on social media, in public relations, promotions, publicity, and advertising, etc.

As a practical matter, Randolph is not able to collect release forms from all photo subjects for the use of images or films taken on campus or at off campus, Randolph-sponsored events.

By agreeing to be subject to the student, faculty, or staff handbook, you (or, for students under 18, your parent or guardian) consented to the capture and/or use of your image and/or voice by Randolph and waived any claims or rights, whether in law or in equity unless you opt out (as described below).

Students, faculty or staff who do not want to be photographed or recorded, or to have their names, voices, or biographical materials used in connection with any such recording, may opt-out by notifying the Office of College Relations (OCR) at Randolph in writing.

While Randolph will take reasonable measures to honor such written requests, students, faculty, or staff who do not want to be photographed or recorded are responsible for removing themselves from the area in which photographing/recording is occurring, or notifying the camera operator of their opt-out status so that their images can be identified and excluded as appropriate.

Failure to do so may result in the individual’s inclusion in a photograph or recording; it will be deemed equivalent to a release, and will allow Randolph to use that photograph or recording as it chooses.
