In loving memory of Professor Igor Ivkovic
Portrait by Jenny Xia, current Systems Design Engineering student.
Igor Ivkovic was a man who not only found his calling as a professor but also instilled a love of learning to all those that he taught. Caring and compassion came naturally to him and he used kindness – along with his quirky wit – to bring the best out of his students and fellow faculty. He saw and respected everyone as they were and did everything in his power to help them become all they could be. During these trying times of Covid-19, Professor Ivkovic built a welcoming space online for students to simply hang out together, share photos and solve puzzles as he understood that his students need more than just excellent teaching to thrive. During his short life, Igor made an enormous difference.
On Kindness by Igor Ivkovic
Kindness is an ember that glows deep inside us
It gives us warmth when the world around us may be cold
It gives us energy to share the warmth with those in need
The ember will glow as long as our spirit is alive
