Dear UNC Community:
We have continued to monitor the COVID-19 virus updates provided by the University. At this time, while there are no confirmed cases on our campus, we have made the decision to cancel the ceremony for the annual Diversity Awards out of an abundance of caution.
We will, however, still be evaluating all of the nominations and announcing the award winners in all categories. Each winner will be featured on our website and via social media and will be presented with an actual award. We understand the disappointment that may occur due to this cancellation, but the safety of our students, faculty, staff, alumni and campus partners is of the utmost importance. The lack of a ceremony certainly does not diminish the fantastic work being done towards advancing diversity, equity and inclusion campus-wide. Please keep up the great work!
With warm regards,
Gretchen C. Bellamy, J.D., LL.M.
Senior Director, The University Office for Diversity & Inclusion
