Campus flags will be lowered to half-mast Feb. 4 in memory of O.P. Dwivedi, professor emeritus in the Department of Political Science, who passed away on Jan. 29.
Dwivedi served as chair of the department from 1979 to 1990. After retiring in 2003, he continued to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses at U of G and served as a Hindu priest on campus. His many honours included being named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a member of the Order of Canada and most recently a recipient of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee medal.
