Good Neighbor Initiative Door Hanger

Hello, neighbor!

We’re in your neighborhood to say hi and let you know how we are educating Tar Heels about being a good neighbor ( and how we share your desire to keep the community safe. Because we care about the safety of our students and the safety of our community, we have policies on alcohol use ( and about non-academic misconduct in place. The alcohol policy protects our community and works to prevent alcohol from interfering with the University’s mission of teaching, research, and service.

If you have concerns about a student’s behavior, the University wants you to let us know. We want students to be responsible community members and to be held accountable if they violate local laws and/or University policies. You can call 911 and/or file a referral form at the Office of Student Conduct (
