N.C. public service workers seek relief from officials as COVID-19 risks escalate

The expansion of COVID-19 continues raising risks for essential state employees, with the death of a Raleigh sanitation worker last week marking a new level of urgency. UE local 150 — a union representing North Carolina public service workers, including many at UNC — sent individual letters to Gov. Roy Cooper, Raleigh city leaders and the UNC System Board of Governors earlier this month.  The UE150 letters called on each authoritative body to implement new, "commonsense" measures that increase support for these workers, as the coronavirus shutters them off from working for needed wages and endangers them in their day-to-day duties. “Something like this kind of shows where there’s a lack of resources, supplies, a lack of personnel,” UE150 President Bryce Carter said, “so it brings those points out even more in these times.”

Here's what you need to know about the aftermath of the AKPsi suspension

A five-year suspension of UNC’s chapter of the co-ed business fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi came earlier this year after violations related to alcohol, hazing and disruption of an investigation by the chapter’s national body. But a new business organization named Scale and Coin has been born at UNC in the months since, drawing resources from Duke University.  At its helm are some former AKPsi members, and students who were in the process of joining the UNC chapter at the time it was suspended.


The Clinical and Psychological Services (CAPS) held an event for students to talk about their mental health experiences on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018.

CAPS now has a 24/7 helpline to meet mental health needs

CAPS 24/7 will allow students experiencing a mental health crisis or who need mental health counseling to speak directly with a mental health professional after CAPS's business hours.  The helpline is a result of the Mental Health Task Force's recommendations after a year-long investigation to improve students' mental health. Students can call (919) 966-3658 for assistance.

"This is a new day. It’s a new time, and the symbols and vestiges of hate and racism that live in people’s hearts and minds, it needs to come to an end. At the end of the day, we are all God’s children, and we are one human race.”
