Profiles of deceased staff members

Last year, when a deceased staff member's page was still active for months after he had passed away, I was told that the discussion went all the way to the Vice Chancellor, and the issue had been resolved.

 

Today, I stumbled across the staff profile of 'Dr Estate of Raymond Myers'

https://www.rmit.edu.au/staff/profile?id=ray.myers

 

According to his obituary, Ray Myers passed away on 28 March 2018.

This is pretty much exactly when we were trying to resolve this issue last year, wasn't it.

 

I didn't know Ray, but I can imagine the effect that this has on staff that knew him. Grief is hard - it doesn't help when an organisation with the resources of RMIT fails to pay respect to their deceased staff members.

 

Please put an enduring solution in place for this issue, once and for all.
