UC Berkeley holds an annual memorial recognizing those in the campus community who have died, including, faculty/academics, staff, students, post-docturates, visiting scholars, and emeriti.

The event took place on Monday, September 1o, 2018 from 12-1pm at the flagpole west of California Hall.

All were invited to attend the event which included brief remarks by the Chancellor, and a reading of the names of those who were being remembered, followed by music and spoken word. The ceremony concluded with the placement of personal tokens at the memorial site. Those present were welcome to bring a flower, ribbon or other memento.

In coming together to remember and to honor the lives of the deceased, we reach out to our many colleagues and friends who have suffered loss, and we share in a universal human experience. The ceremony symbolizes the care and support that distinguishes the Berkeley community.

Those who were remembered this year are listed below.
