The Concordia community is deeply saddened by the recent death of student Jun Lin. We are heartened by the collective response of caring and concern for his family and friends during this difficult time. In particular, we would like to commend the Concordia Chinese Student Association (CCSA) for its leadership in responding to the outpouring of offers to assist the Lin family.
Following a meeting yesterday with the CCSA and the Lin family, Concordia is pleased to announce that we are establishing the Jun Lin Family Fund to provide financial assistance for the immediate needs of the Lin family. We are also creating the Jun Lin Award to benefit Chinese students studying at the university.
This has been a very emotional and heartbreaking journey for the Lin family. It is our hope that they will be comforted by the knowledge that the Jun Lin Award will honour their son’s memory, and support other Chinese students who wish to pursue their academic studies at our university.
Please visit the Advancement and Alumni Relations website to make a donation to these funds.
