In Memoriam

In Memoriam

Upon receiving notification from a department, school, or college of a Senate member’s passing, the Academic Senate Office contacts the appropriate dean of the college or school to request the names of three people who can be appointed to a Memorial Committee to prepare an In Memoriam resolution. The Academic Senate Office contacts the committee members to request their participation and provides detailed instructions, a link to the Systemwide Senate In Memoriam website, and a deadline (usually 2 months). When the completed In Memoriam resolution is returned to the Academic Senate Office, the Senate office staff format the resolution according to Systemwide Senate publishing requirements and send it, with a photo of the deceased, to the Systemwide Senate office. After the resolution has been posted to the Systemwide In Memoriam website, the Systemwide office sends a formal Memorial Packet, which is provided to the Dean’s Office for distribution to the deceased’s family.

In Memoriam requests and documents should be emailed to Sara Camara (scamara@ucdavis.edu) and Theresa Costa (tacosta@ucdavis.edu).
