The University of Alberta has a tradition of lowering the University of Alberta banner to half mast position as a sign of mourning at the death of a current undergraduate or graduate student, faculty or staff member, professor emeritus, serving member of the Board of Governors or University Senate, and honorary degree recipients. The banner remains at half-mast for two days.
Requests to have the University banner lowered to the half-mast position can be made to the Convocation and Ceremonies Office at 780-492-1875.
The University banner flies above the Administration Building.
The form to request that the banner be lowered can be found here.
The University of Alberta banner is presently at half-mast in memory of:
Lawrence Hong, Josh Hunter, Jordan Segura

Our condolences go out to all our University of Calgary, Mount Royal University and Alberta College colleagues and the friends and families of the students.
