Former FYP director and CSP professor Dr Peggy Heller passed away this morning.
An email sent to the staff said that Prof Heller was at home, with her family around her.
The College flags are at half mast in her memory.
Prof. Heller began teaching in the Foundation Year Programme in 1982 and in the Contemporary Studies Programme in 1993.
More to come.
