Scheduled for Review
The College receives four types of requests related to memorials and recognition:
The preferred method of recognizing a deceased person is by contribution to the unrestricted scholarship fund, a named scholarship fund or other naming opportunity. If a specific memorial is requested, the following options are available.
Reason for Policy
This policy provides a framework for memorializing students, alumni and faculty/staff.
For following the policy: Employees
Annually, the Director of the Student Union will obtain the list of students that have passed away during the fiscal year from the Registrar’s office. The obtained names will be added to the Student Memorial Plaque located in the Student Union.
Those wishing to memorialize a deceased faculty/staff member or alumnus should contact the Fort Lewis College Division of Institutional Advancement. The Advancement staff will be responsible for assisting the requester related to donation amounts, potential naming opportunities, and wording for the plaque. Additionally, Advancement staff will order the plaque and arrange for installation.
Existing memorial plaques that are displaced as campus changes are made may be consolidated to locations identified within this policy.
