Death Response

As we strive to celebrate one another's accomplishments, we strive to be especially supportive and compassionate during difficult times. One of the most difficult of times is when a member of our campus community dies. Death calls for the most sensitive of responses, yet campus members may be uncertain about what to do for family, friends and colleagues.

While each life and death is unique, and individual judgment is always necessary, these "Guidelines for Responding to Death" offer tools to help campus members to respond thoroughly and consistently to their own individual needs, and those of family and colleagues.
