University Headshot Directory Procedure
The University of Southern Indiana online headshot directory and database delivers headshots to faculty and staff listings on web pages, faculty homepages, and the USI phone directory. The same photograph is also used for Outlook. It is important that all images in this directory are recent and maintain a consistent look.
Photography Services takes headshots of individuals accented by standard lighting and a tasteful background. Headshots are taken in the photography studio at the Publishing Services Center. Photography Services will select the best photo, email a copy to the individual, and load the image to the online photo directory database. Contact Photography Services for a list of open studio days or to make other arrangements for a photograph.
Individuals who do not want an image to appear on the USI website or in publications must complete an opt-out form.
Following are the acceptable and preferred methods for headshot database photographs:
- Use a headshot photograph taken by Photography Services within the past five years.
- Headshots older than five years will be scheduled and retaken by Photography Services.
- For individuals who cannot come to campus, headshots on file with the Eagle Access Card office will be used until they can be updated.
- If there is no photograph on file with the Eagle Access Card office, a placeholder will be used indicating that no photograph is available.
Due to issues with size, quality and consistency, submitted headshots, professional or not, will not be accepted for the USI headshot database. Questions can be directed to the director of News and Information Services.
