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 Banner is presently at half-mast in memory of:
Mr. William Alexander Douglas (Doug) Burns
Former Special Assistant to the President and APO in the Registrar's Office
with 28 years of service to the University
June 22, 2015
Our condolences go out to all family, friends and colleagues.
