Statement on UIA 752 Tragedy

The Faculty of Education community is deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life on Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752. Our hearts go out to the families and friends of all those who were aboard the plane.

It is with great sadness that we have learned that Faculty of Education alumna Niloofar Razzaghi-Khamsi (BEd’ 2018), her husband Ardalan Ebnoddin Hamidi and teenage son Kamyar Ebnoddin Hamidi were among those aboard the plane. Words cannot express the impact of this tragedy on our community and we offer our deepest condolences to those who knew Niloofar and her family.

The Faculty of Education will provide support and assistance to anyone in need.
