UNC’s Faculty Executive Committee met Monday afternoon to discuss Campus Community Standards and Guidelines for the spring semester and the scheduling of University wellness days.
- Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Amy Johnson updated the committee on how the University plans to enforce UNC’s Community Standards regarding COVID-19 in the spring semester.
