It is with tremendous sadness that we let you know that Christine Crosbie passed away on the weekend, following a short battle with cancer. Christine has been a valued colleague, friend and key member of the OCAD University community since she joined the Marketing & Communications team in 2013. This is a devastating loss. Our hearts go out to her family, friends and all who were fortunate enough to know her.
