Campus Bereavement - Lowering of Flag

Applies To:

Month/Year Posted: 
February, 2003
Policy Number: 

The University will acknowledge the death of HSU faculty and staff (both current and former employees) and others as the President deems appropriate, through the lowering of the flags at half-mast. The confirmed death of an employee should be reported to the Office of the President as soon as it becomes known. With the approval of the President, the lowering of the flags for one day - usually the date of the memorial service - will be coordinated with University Police. University Police personnel will be provided the pertinent details, as verified by the Payroll Department (name, position title, dates of HSU service, and date of death) for preparation of the display card located at the flagpole. 

Distribution: All faculty and staff
