Dear fellow staff,
I am deeply saddened and troubled by the shooting deaths of congregates at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church yesterday evening. I want to reach out to you and echo the Chancellor’s message that our UNC Chapel Hill community is dedicated to ensuring that all who are affected by this tragedy have the resources and encouragement to speak out about this event and obtain any needed counseling. Employees may contact the UNC Employee Assistance Program at 877-314-5841.
Violence that stems from racially-motivated hatred is unacceptable. As a staff, we stand for principles of fairness, justice and equality.
If you ever feel as if you are treated unfairly because of your race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or any other identity-based factor, please file a report with the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office.
As always, feel free to reach out to your Employee Forum representatives with comments or concerns. As your representative body, we are “committed to fostering an open and positive environment throughout the university community.”
Chair of the Employee Forum
