Campuswide Memorial

August 30, 2019

 Chancellor's Office

 

Dear Campus Community,

On Tuesday, September 10, 2019 the campus will hold its annual memorial event to recognize the more than 54 faculty, staff, students, emeriti faculty, and staff retirees who passed on last year. The event will take place from 12 to 1 p.m. at the flagpole west of California Hall. The program will include brief remarks and a reading of the names of those we are remembering, followed by music and poetry. The ceremony will conclude with the placement of personal tokens at the memorial site. Those attending are invited to bring a flower, ribbon or other token. All are invited to attend.

The Campus Memorial is an important Berkeley tradition that symbolizes the care and support that distinguishes the Berkeley community.

In coming together to remember and to honor the lives of the deceased, we reach out to our many colleagues and friends who have suffered loss, and we share in a universal human experience that touches us all.

To ensure the inclusion of all the names of the deceased in the September 10 event, please take a moment to review the names collected so far listed here: https://uhs.berkeley.edu/death-response/campus-memorial

If you note any errors or omissions, please email campusmemorial@berkeley.edu with the correct information by 5 p.m., Wednesday, September 4.

Please join me for this campus event on Tuesday, September 10 at 12 p.m  at the flagpole west of California Hall.

 

Sincerely,

Carol Christ
Chancellor
