My deepest condolences to the Serras family. Lidia was a very welcoming and kind presence when I joined Schulich in June of 2019, consistently stopping by my office to say hello. My very best wishes to the family. The Schulich community mourns.

I describe Lidia as someone who had the power to change the DNA of anything that she touched. That was because of her passion. It was infectious! It was palpable from the final stage telephone interview I had with her which landed her the job her at Schulich. In other words, Lidia was passionate about Schulich before she'd even started and then she unleashed that amazing and positive energy on us from the day she walked through those doors. For those of us who had the opportunity to work closely with Lidia, her spirit is now permanently interwoven with ours, and we are richer because of that. Thank you, Lidia for choosing to close your career journey with us.

I first met Lidia during an MBA fair in Mexico City last year. Her charisma and passion got me interested in Schulich.
In a way, I wouldn’t be studying here if it wasn’t for her.
Forever grateful, my time at Schulich will be dedicated to honour her memory. Thank you Lidia.

Dear Lidia,

I remember coming to Schulich Open house and speaking with you about Master of Management program in 2018. Later in 2020, I graduated from that program with Distinction, and coming to Schulich was one of the best decisions in my life. This decision was influenced by great people that I met at Schulich like yourself. Thank you for being such a positive person and emitting so much genuine and kind energy to people around you. It makes us, students, love the school we all belong to. Wishing all the best to you and your family.

Warm regards,


Anthony Liegghio

I met Lidia on March 8th 2019, the international women’s day, for my interview to Schulich. She is such a nice lady, welcoming, elegant, and well-spoken. I had a good 30-min chat with her which didn’t really feel like an interview. I fell on ice a day before my interview, so Lidia was asking about my bloody hands and the scratches on my face, which I felt really warm. Deeply sad about this, miss her and wish the best for her family.

Always had a smile and was cheerfully helpful to students and faculty alike.
A wonderful person and an irreplaceable resource they will be sorely missed. Rest In Peace.

Lidia's strength, compassion and dedication meant everything to me, especially during these very difficult times. As my manager and friend, Lidia's bottomless reservoir of care, patience and appreciation always made the difference on the most challenging days. As a world class education professional, she will always be my inspiration.

AIESEC in Canada

For the past couple of years, AIESEC in Canada has had the pleasure of working closely with Lidia to help continue the partnership we have with Schulich. Lidia was absolutely amazing to work with and at every meeting, she never failed to put a smile on our faces.

Our deepest condolences go out to her family, loved ones and the Schulich community.
