The University has announced it plans to share publicly more information about numbers of and disposition of violations of its community standards for behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a campus message from the student affairs office, the University will share key data at carolinatogether.unc.edu on at least a quarterly basis (Feb. 1, May 1 and Aug. 1) that summarize community standards referrals for violations and outcomes.
About 80 percent of violation referrals between Aug. 1 and Oct. 31 resulted in findings of responsibility and a consequence for the students involved.
During that period:
• 456 incidents produced violation reports;
• 324 cases resulted in action, including written warnings, educational interventions, activity restrictions and probation;
• 56 students were evicted from campus housing; and
• 60 more ended in no violation, with 16 cases pending.
