Relating to Showing Respect and Condolences on the Death of a Student, Faculty, Staff or Former Employee

Given that only the Governor can order the lowering of the state and national flag, as a gesture of respect and condolence from the campus community, the University flag shall be lowered to half-staff on the day of the funeral* of a student, faculty, staff, or former   employee.

*The day of the funeral is usually the most timely and appropriate day but that is to be taken as a guideline. Any day which is timely and relevant can be utilized.
