UC Berkeley held its annual memorial recognizing those in the campus community who died, including, academic & faculty, emeriti, staff, students, post-doctorates, and visiting scholars, on Friday, September 22nd at noon by the flagpole west of California Hall.

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

In coming together to remember and 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. This ceremony symbolizes the care and support that distinguishes the Berkeley community.

Those who will be remembered at this year's Campus Memorial are listed below. View those who were remembered last year at the 2022 Campus Memorial.

If you have any questions regarding this event or would like to add a person to be remembered, please contact memorial organizers at campusmemorial@berkeley.eduThis event will be live-streamed on our Berkeley Event Page. A recording of the event will be available at a later date.
