On behalf of the Langara College community, I would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Delaram Dadashnejad, whose family has confirmed to CBC that she was among those lost in a plane crash in Tehran today.

Delaram was an international student taking university transfer classes, and was flying home to Vancouver after a visit with family in Tehran.

The loss of one of our students is one that impacts our entire community. Our Counselling and International Education team will be providing support for our students, while staff and faculty have access to our Employee and Family Assistance Program. Students can also access resources through One Voice Canada or Empower Me, a 24/7 helpline at 1.844.741.6389, for further support.

A memorial has been organized by the Langara Persian Club and the International Education Department to remember Delaram Dadashnejad.
