Message from University leadership: Addressing threatening flyers

Dear Carolina Community:

We have become aware of a threatening flyer that has been posted around campus and disseminated through social media expressing acts of violence to supporters of President Trump. We take these matters very seriously. The flyer and its message are the antithesis of the values that are the foundation of our University. It is not designed to spark civil discourse or encourage thoughtful debate. Its intentions are to incite violence, and there is no place for that here or in our society.

If you see something that you feel falls into this category, we encourage you to contact University Police at 919-962-8100. If you see offensive material and feel you need assistance, we encourage students to call Counseling and Psychological Services (919-966-3658), and faculty and staff to contact our Employee Assistance Program (877-314-5841). We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our campus.

Sincerely,

Carol L. Folt
Chancellor
