"We would be naïve indeed to assume that similar events and occurrences never happen at our own university."

–UNC President Kay Norton, in a Nov. 12, 2015, email to the campus community about the events earlier that month that led to racial discrimination protests at colleges across the country.

Norton reminded students, faculty and staff that their participation in UNC’s recently launched Campus Climate Initiative will be instrumental in helping foster a welcoming and inclusive climate at UNC that is characterized by mutual respect, honest dialogue and civil interaction. The multiyear initiative will include a survey that students and employees will be invited to complete this fall.
