Christer Carlsson’s Memorial Fund

 

Christer Carlsson's memorial fund is managed by the three Student Unions at LiU: StuFF, LinTek and Consensus. It is aimed at students and relatives of students who need support in case of death and grief.

 

Why does the fund exist?

Christer Carlsson worked as student coordinator at Student Health Until his death on November 7, 2010, after a period of illness. Christer's support for individual students and various student organizations has over the years been invaluable and extremely appreciated and left behind a great loss.

One of Christer's wishes was to start up a fund for relatives of students who has passed away. The three student unions LinTek, Consensus and StuFF joined forces to fulfill Christer's wishes, and started the fund in his name. The unions want it to be a good way to let Christer's spirit live on at Linköping University. The fund is also for those who wish to organise events or the like in connection with death or crisis.

Who was Christer?
