Any person may refer behavior by Carolina students to the Office of Student Conduct relevant to non-compliance of the University’s Community Standards and guidelines associated with COVID-19. The Office of Student Conduct will review and address the behavior as appropriate based upon the information provided and, in some cases, the COVID-19 Administrative Review process may apply. For the Office of Student Conduct to effectively follow-up on reports of student non-compliance with public health measures, and to meet due process requirements, detailed information about the incident and the individuals involved is needed.
Part of our community remaining healthy is holding each other accountable to the Community Standards and guidelines established by the University. In the words of Provost Bob Blouin, “Carolina is a place where we care for one another and doing so has never been more important as we work to fulfill our mission of teaching, research, and service.” Provost Blouin also shared that while the risk of COVID-19 cannot be eliminated, we all have a responsibility to “Know your W’s” - Wear a mask, Watch your distance and remain 6 feet apart, Wash your hands often.
