04/14/2015

MIT community invited to April 27 lecture and April 29 memorial dedication and picnic in honor of Officer Sean Collier.

During the last week of April, the MIT community is invited to gather for several events focused on MIT Police Officer Sean Collier, who was killed in active service two years ago.

In a letter to the community on the first anniversary of Officer Collier’s passing, MIT President L. Rafael Reif described him as “a young man with a wonderful spirit of kindness, service, curiosity and play, and an extraordinary ability to touch the hearts of everyone around him. Through the example of his life, and through our shared experience after his death, he taught us the power of community in ways that no one present at the time will ever forget.” Reif also noted that “it is fitting that we honor his sacrifice, celebrate his life and allow his spirit to lift our hearts and connect us with one another.”
