7,001: Recognition of Deceased Students, Faculty and Staff

Last Revised: October 2006

The University will lower to half-mast the United States and Nevada flags for one day following the death of any registered student and faculty or staff member on contract with the University. The same will apply to deaths within the membership of the Board of Regents. The flags may also be lowered upon the death of an emeritus faculty member, at the discretion of the president. All other occasions for lowering the flags will be governed by "Flag Laws and Regulations" in the U.S. Code.

This policy will be implemented by Buildings and Grounds personnel upon notification by the University Police Services.
