Several universities and colleges in Canada have lowered their flags and issued statements in the wake of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Memorial University reflected on the Queen’s visit in 1978, when she turned the sod for the Queen Elizabeth II library, and its long-standing campus in Harlow, England. Brandon University remarked upon the Queen’s visits to the university, including her participation in the official opening of the Queen Elizabeth II Music Building. Institutions such as the University of Guelph, Queen’s University, and Niagara College lowered or kept their flags at half-mast. Universities Canada stated that it will be continuing to honour the Queen through the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships program, which was established in 2012.
