Student Memorial Service
Every spring, the Office of the Dean of Students works with campus partners to hold a multi-faith memorial service to honor students who have passed away during the past year. The service includes words from university administrators, the chaplain of the university hospital, readings from a variety of faiths and a reciting of the students’ names.
Posthumous Degrees and Certificates of Achievement
A posthumous award will be considered if a student was in their final semester of study and had applied to graduate. If the student does not qualify for a posthumous degree, a certificate of achievement may be awarded to honor the work the students had completed. The Office of the Dean of Students will assist in contacting the appropriate University officials to request a posthumous degree or certificate of achievement. The diploma or announcement will be released to the designated family member.
