Celebrate LDOC Safely 

With the excitement that comes from being able to gather without as many COVID-19 restrictions as we experienced in months past, among many other milestones to celebrate, we encourage everyone in the Tar Heel community to continue looking out for one another. Part of connecting with each other is also looking out for each other. That’s why on LDOC, and every day of the year, we are reminded how each of us can build a community of care through being an active bystander.  

Being an active bystander means you are observing the environment around you in anticipation of taking action, rather than just expecting someone else will.  As we begin re-building our physical connections, we have the opportunity to intervene in potentially harmful or dangerous situations in person or online. If you see a member of our community needing support, it is important to reach out and try to help.  If we are all active bystanders, we will create a community that promotes healthy values, where we can depend on each other.   

We have posted some ways you can help ensure the safety and wellness of all Tar Heels on LDOC and throughout exams at the Heels Care Network website.

No matter how you celebrate LDOC, take time to reflect on the year, center your well-being and support your fellow Tar Heels.  

Happy LDOC!
