The Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Persons with Disabilities (CCSPD) is seeking new members for the upcoming academic year August 2015 to July 2016. Our Mission is to promote empowerment and inclusion of students, faculty and staff with disabilities at UIC. The Committee recognizes that people with disabilities are a diverse group, including individuals with visible and non-visible disabilities.
The CCSPD provides a forum for discussion and assessment of disability-related issues that are relevant for the campus and the larger community. In addition, the CCSPD advises the Chancellor and other administrative units and makes recommendations on disability-related issues, policies, services, attitudes and practices on campus. This mission is motivated by the belief that people with disabilities are assets to the university.
We are seeking candidates from all aspects of campus: Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, Faculty, and Staff. We seek candidates that have an eagerness to promote the mission of our committee coupled with a strong desire to learn from others.
