Memorial service held on campus

 Staff and students invited to attend campus memorial service

It is with sadness that we are contacting our Lincoln University family following the horrific attacks in Christchurch.

16/03/2019 2:00:00 p.m.
Sadly, the university is likely to have lost members of our family. A short memorial service will be held near the flagpole in front of Ivey Hall on Monday, 18 March at 12 noon. All staff and students are welcome to attend.

Our leadership team stands by its staff and students as "parents" of the Lincoln University family.

That family includes members from throughout New Zealand and from numerous countries internationally. Many faiths and beliefs are represented among us.

Be assured that the university is right beside you as you come to terms with the tragedy that has now affected the lives of all of us in New Zealand.

Lincoln University will work compassionately to support its family members - staff, students and alumni - who are suffering from Friday's tragedy.
