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:
Dr. Charles Richard Stelck
2003 Honorary Degree Recipient
Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
Faculty of Science
May 14, 2016
Our condolences go out to all family, friends and colleagues.
