The purpose of this policy is to define minimum security controls for devices in use at the UNC School of Medicine. Individual departments/units may apply stricter controls to protect information and devices in their areas of responsibility. The policy applies to each School of Medicine Constituent for any covered device under their control, including personal devices (“Bring Your Own Device” - “BYOD”).
This Standard provides requirements for the procurement of accessible Digital Content, Resources, and Technology (“Digital Material”). Implementing this standard will ensure that all individuals have access to Digital Material purchased by or on behalf of the University in compliance with the Policy on Digital Accessibility and with governing law.
This Standard sets out the minimum requirements for creating accessible Digital Content, Resources, and Technology (“Digital Material”) to advance the University’s commitment to providing equitable access in compliance with the University Policy on Digital Accessibility. Accessibility is a shared responsibility among those who maintain University Digital Material.

This document explains the University's approach to providing occupational health support for biomedical research. An occupational health program that supports staff with access to biological hazards, such as infectious agents or toxins, should aim to alleviate the risk of adverse health consequences due to potential exposures to biohazards in the workplace. Health services should be risk-based and tailored to meet the needs of individual staff and the research institution.
This document provides guidance on conducting a risk assessment, implementing a risk mitigation program, communicating during and after the assessment, and developing practices to support ongoing application of the risk assessment process to ensure safe laboratory operations.
The purpose of this policy is to ensure that the University is prepared for and can effectively respond to and recover from a Disaster or Emergency through the appropriate use of University and community resources.
