Photo database

The Office of University Relations maintains and regularly updates the University’s photo database. This office works with contracted photographers to cover events, showcase new facilities and capture student culture. University units are encouraged to contact the Office of University Relations to suggest events, classrooms or locations on campus that are potentially good photo opportunities. There are thousands of high-quality digital images on this database available to WMU units and organizations.

Contact Sue Beougher to schedule an appointment to search the photo database.

Although there is no charge for using images from the database, use is limited to WMU communication. This photography is not available for personal use. Existing photography may be added to the University’s database by contacting the Office of University Relations.
