University mourns passing of Nancy Diamond

February 17, 2017

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Durham Regional Councillor and Oshawa City Councillor Nancy Diamond.

Councillor Diamond's commitment to Oshawa spanned more than three decades. First elected to Oshawa Council in 1988, she served on City Council between 1988 and 1991. She was elected as Oshawa mayor, serving from 1991 to 2003. In 2010, she was re-elected as a Regional and City Councillor. Councillor Diamond was a longtime friend and supporter of the university and our campus partner, Durham College.

In honour of Nancy's life, the university's flags will be lowered on the day of her funeral (Monday, February 20).
