Policies and Regulations
Death of a Student Notification/Protocol
The death of a student denotes a loss for the University community and the family and friends of the deceased. In this sad and unfortunate event, the Division of Student Affairs is the campus's official notification point.
Once notified of a student's passing, the office will initiate the campus notification protocol and begin supporting family, faculty, and staff on the student's university-related affairs and ease the administrative burden on the family.
Appropriate emotional support is available for affected faculty, staff, friends and classmates in collaboration with Counseling & Psychological Services.
Free Speech Event Policy
At UNCP, freedom of speech and expression is essential to who we are. We are an inclusive community that encourages respect and learning, and we allow differing opinions to be heard. The free speech webpage contains information and resources related to how we work to create and support an environment where freedom of speech and expression thrive.
