In Memoriam

The University of Alberta has a tradition of lowering the University of Alberta banner to half-mast position as a sign of mourning at the death of a current undergraduate or graduate student, faculty or staff member, professor emeritus, serving member of the Board of Governors or University Senate, or honorary degree recipient. 

A flag or all three flags (National, Provincial and University) may be lowered for National, Provincial or International incidents or deaths that have a direct connection to the University.

All three flags (National, Provincial and University) will be lowered annually for the National Day of Mourning for those who have suffered and died in the workplace (April 28), Remembrance Day (November 11) and National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women (December 6).

The banner remains at half-mast for two days and flies above the Administration Building.
