A nonsectarian Service of Remembrance, to be held April 27 at 3:30 p.m. in Sage Chapel, will honor the lives of students, staff and faculty who have died in the past year.

“The Service of Remembrance provides us with an opportunity to come together as Cornellians and honor those within the Big Red family who we have lost,” said Ryan Lombardi, vice president for Student and Campus Life. “It further allows us to stand shoulder to shoulder with peers, colleagues and friends, and lean on our community’s collective strength.”

The service will be hosted by the Office of Spirituality and Meaning-Making, in collaboration with numerous campus partners. As part of the ceremony, Shelby Lynn Williams ’25, Student Assembly representative, Andrea Haenlin-Mott, chair of the Employee Assembly, and Provost Michael I. Kotlikoff will light candles honoring students, staff and faculty, respectively.
