Laurine Margaret Harrison

February 11, 1956 - June 17, 2007

To say Laurine was a remarkable person is an understatement.

In her 30 years as a member of the Simon Fraser University community, she touched countless lives. First, as the Coordinator of Cinema Simon Fraser, then as University Relations Fieldworker for the Student Society, and for the last 14 years as the Ombudsperson.

When she passed away in June 2007, her family, friends and colleagues came together to memorialize her contributions to the University and to create a means to ensure her contributions would continue long into the future.

The goal of Laurine Harrison Endowment Fund is to raise $50,000, which will be matched by Simon Fraser University for a total endowment of $100,000. This will fund, in perpetuity, two undergraduate student awards and one graduate student award. Any funds raised in excess of the $100,000 will go to increase the value and/or number of awards.
