Increased Number of Phishing Messages to Campus

November 28, 2017

UNC-Chapel Hill has recently experienced a significant increase in the number of phishing messages that delivered to faculty, staff and student inboxes. While measures were put in place to limit the impact of this phishing campaign, UNC Information Technology Services (ITS) is investigating ways to improve our response times in the future.

As a reminder:

  • ITS will never send emails with subject lines that create a sense of urgency, such as “LAST CHANCE,” “MAIL ALERT” or “WARNING! ATTENTION REQUIRED.”
  • ITS will never ask you via email to confirm or verify an account by logging in with your Onyen and password.
  • You should always be suspicious of emails that include poor grammar, punctuation or use all caps.
  • When in doubt and before clicking on links, users can call 919-962-HELP to ask if a message is legitimate.
  • You should visit phish.unc.edu often to stay informed on the latest phishing attempts on campus.

2017 & 2018 Holiday Calendars

October 27, 2017

As we approach the holiday season, this is a reminder of the 2017 holiday calendar published last year. We are also publishing at this time the 2018 holiday calendar. The calendars can be accessed on the Leave & Holidays page of this website.

Some departments have essential work that must be done (related to research, healthcare, safety, etc.) and designated employees report to work regardless of state, federal, or University holidays. SHRA employees who work on designated holidays will be paid holiday premium pay, in addition to hour for hour compensatory time up to 8 hours daily. Employees can use annual leave, bonus leave, or accrued compensatory time to cover University Closed Days, as State guidelines do not permit the University to pay premium holiday pay for University Closed Day(s) during Winter Break. Special arrangements will be made for employees hired just before a Winter Break who have not accrued sufficient leave.

If you have any questions about the holiday schedule, please contact the Benefits and Leave Administration unit in the Office of Human Resources at 919-962-3071 or benefits@unc.edu.
