Salem State University on Monday will celebrate the life of Sean A. Collier, an MIT police officer who was killed in the line of duty on April 18, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Collier graduated with honors from Salem State University in 2009 with a degree in criminal justice. He is remembered on Salem State’s campus as a friendly, caring and selfless person.

Several classmates and professors as well as President Patricia Meservey are scheduled to speak at the ceremony.

The ceremony will be held at 4:30 p.m. on the lawn next to the university's police station. In the event of inclement weather, it will take place in the Marsh Hall Dining Room on Central Campus.

The Sean A. Collier ’09 Criminal Justice Award has been established in memory of the slain officer.
