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:
Ms. Catherine Jane Silzer
Alumna of the University and
former staff member of the Registrar's Office
August 14, 2015
Our condolences go out to former Registrar, Brian Silzer and all family, friends and colleagues.
