UNC Asheville Expectations of Mutual Respect & Care for All
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.
The health and safety of our faculty, staff, students, visitors, and the Asheville community are our highest priority, and we will offer high-quality, in-person academic instruction and co-curricular experiences that are rooted in each person’s responsibility for the health of all. This is a time of collective responsibility for our shared culture of care, compassion, and mutual respect.
Each of us has a responsibility to be knowledgeable about and to comply with virus mitigation protocols that maximize a healthy environment for all at UNC Asheville.
Together we will face the COVID-19 challenges through individual responsibility, resilience, mutual respect, and attention to the common good for all.
As members of this community, we care about everyone.
As faculty, staff, students, and visitors, we have chosen to be a part of the UNC Asheville community and we understand that our actions to follow health and safety practices will impact the health and safety of others.
We recognize that not all populations are impacted equally and agree to take care to protect vulnerable populations such as people 65 years and older, people who are immunocompromised, people with asthma or diabetes, and Black, Hispanic, and Latinx communities.
Our shared commitment is to take the necessary precautions to avoid spreading COVID-19 while following all recommended health guidelines.
As a member of the University community, I agree to:
