Chancellor van Noort’s Message – Aug. 28, 2023

Dear Campus Community,

We are devastated to learn of the shooting death of a faculty member at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire campus community at our sister institution for the trauma caused by this horrific event and the hours of uncertainty experienced during the lockdown.

Tragically, such events are all too common, and we remain vigilant here at UNC Asheville to ensure the safety and well-being of our entire community.

We know that some may be experiencing anxiety and worry; resources are available for all faculty, staff, and students.

Students in need of personal support may contact Health and Counseling Services at 828.251.6520. The Faculty and Staff Employee Assistance Program, with confidential counseling available 24/7, can be reached at 833.515.0768.

In sorrow,

Kimberly van Noort
Interim Chancellor
