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, and honorary degree recipients.
The banner remains at half-mast for two days and flies above the Administration Building.
The University of Alberta banner is presently at half-mast in memory of:
Dr. Robert (Bob) Crawford
Former: Acting Dean of Science, Associate Dean of Science, Chair of
Chair of Computing Science, Director of the Research Grants Office and
member of the Board of Governors
Department of Chemistry
Faculty of Science
April 7, 2015
Our condolences go out to all family, friends, and colleagues.
