Brooklyn College to Erect COVID-19 Memorial on Campus

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Brooklyn College will erect a special memorial on campus and host a ceremony to commemorate the lives of those who died from COVID-19.

President Michelle Anderson shared the plans during the Feb. 15 Faculty Council meeting.

“Some kind of planned display and ceremonial coming together when it is safe to gather in person on the quad in large groups,” Anderson said. “We hope to do that kind of memorial later this spring.”

When COVID-19 closed campus and moved classes online in Mar. 2020, the Brooklyn College community suffered losses almost immediately.
