Latest Campus Update

July 23, 2020

Dear UNC Asheville Faculty, Staff and Students,

On behalf of the UNC Asheville Statement of Community Care Working Group of

faculty, staff, student, alumni, and parent representatives, please find attached two design options for the UNC Asheville Expectations of Mutual Respect and Care For All.

These individual and community-wide expectations clearly outline five virus mitigation tactics to support the health and safety of everyone on campus. Five companion expectations are also outlined for the University to support this effort.

Given the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect each and every member of the UNC Asheville community to follow rigorous self-care for all health and safety protocols throughout the fall semester.

For further information about UNC Asheville’s Fall 2020 Plan including additional virus mitigation and health protocols, please visit The community expectations can also be found on the website:

A sincere thank you to the Working Group for weeks of deeply engaged and thoughtful conversations that helped shape these expectations: Clifton Bush, Janet Cone, Sonya DiPalma, Shannon Earle, Kenya Smith Edwards, Melanie Fox, Bill Haggard, Tom Hand, Susan Clark, Sarah Humphries Nazionale, London Newton, Jordan Perry, Copland Rudolph,

Jasmine Taylor, and Ethan Tressler.
