NCCU faculty and staff are expected to engage collectively in health and safety measures that help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and protect our campus and local community members. The university’s commitment to comply with these community standards – and to lead by example – is important to helping create a healthy and safe community.
Community responsibility is essential to preventing the spread of COVID-19, our individual actions affect us all collectively. To uphold its commitment to protect the campus community, the University provides education to all and upholds these measures through consistent and equitable enforcement processes.
NCCU’s Human Resources' efforts remain aligned and consistent with local orders and ordinances of the City of Durham and Durham County, as well as the State of North Carolina’s Phased Reopening Model. North Carolina Central University’s plans will also follow recommendations from the EEOC, CDC, NC Department of Health and Human Services and Durham County Public Health.
All faculty and staff are expected to know and follow the community standards as a condition of employment.
