Bereavement Notices

The death of a student, a member of the faculty or staff, active or emeriti, or their family members represents a loss for the PUC campus community.  

The purpose of this policy is to establish certain responsibilities concerning the notifications that need to be made to the campus in the event of the death of a member of the campus community and to coordinate such actions expeditiously and sensitively with regards to the feelings of the family, relatives, and friends of the deceased.

To respect the privacy and wishes of the survivors, announcements will only be sent when specifically requested by the immediate family of the deceased or PUC’s human resources office.

Our longstanding bereavement policy outlines that the college will send announcements for the passing of the following:  

  • College and HME employee
  • Pastoral staff member
  • Board of Trustee member
  • Professor emeritus
  • Current student
  • PUC elementary employee and PUC Prep employee
  • Spouses, parents, in-laws, and children of the above

Requests for a bereavement notice will require completion of the standardized submission form below. If sufficient information is not provided, a notice will not be written. Please allow 2-3 business days for the processing of each request.
