UC Berkeley will hold its annual memorial recognizing those in the campus community who have died, including, academic & faculty, emerti, staff, students, post-doctorates, and visiting scholars, on Monday, September 14th, 2020, from noon to 1 pm, and will be live-streamed on the UC Berkeley Events Youtube channel. Due to COVID 19, the memorial will be held virtually. 

All are invited to attend this virtual event which will include brief remarks by the Chancellor, and a reading of the names of those who are being remembered, followed by music and spoken word. 

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, as we share in a universal human experience. The ceremony symbolizes the care and support that distinguishes the Berkeley community.
