The University of Utah has created a virtual space for students, faculty and staff to share memories of students who have passed away.
RememberingU.utah.edu is a virtual memorial where, with the permission of family members, deceased students’ photos and names will be shared. Memories of each student can then be submitted through an online form. All submissions will be reviewed for content and community standards before being shared publicly.
”The death of any student has a profound impact on our campus community and beyond,” said Jason Ramirez, dean of students. “We created this virtual space so those who knew and loved a deceased student have somewhere to share their thoughts and memories. We hope it is able to help in the healing process.”
Due to the pandemic, there has not been an in-person memorial for students who passed in the last three years. These students are currently included on the new memorial page. Moving forward, students who have passed will remain on Remembering U for one year.
Families of students who have passed can request to have their student included in the memorial by emailing email@example.com.
