Last month the Monash community was very saddened to hear of the passing of Emeritus Professor Homer Le Grand. Professor Le Grand, whose tremendous contributions were touched upon in my email of 19 January, was Dean of our Faculty of Arts from 1999 to 2006, as well as Dean of Science in 1999 and 2000.
A memorial service for Professor Le Grand will be held on Friday 3 March at 1.30pm in the Monash University Religious Centre, Clayton Campus.
Refreshments will be available after the service, in the Monash Staff Club.
The family of Professor Le Grand have requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Homer Le Grand Student Assistance Scholarship scheme.
Information regarding campus parking and shuttle bus transport on the day of the service is set out below.
