Flag lowered in honour of Amanda Zoe Lu

- University of Victoria

The university flag will be lowered on Nov. 24 in honour of Zoe Lu, who passed away on Oct. 17 after a reoccurrence of an extremely aggressive form of cancer called triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). Zoe was a longtime staff member of the Department of Sociology.

Zoe began her career with UVic in 2006 as the Graduate Program Secretary, quickly demonstrating her commitment to others by providing support to new students and teaching assistants. In 2016, she became Assistant to the Chair and was essential to the daily functioning of the Department of Sociology, serving others with grace and humour.

A memorial will be held on Friday, Nov. 24, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. in the Sequoia Centre at McCall Gardens. The service will also be live-streamed for out-of-town guests.
