The Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Persons with Disabilities (CCSPD) is an advisory body dedicated to promoting the academic, professional, cultural and social welfare of persons with disabilities as well as providing leadership on the history, needs and resources of said population at the University of Illinois at Chicago. To do this, the various subcommittees of the CCSPD focus on a variety of facets of UIC life such as representation, climate, policies, services, and practices that affect faculty, staff and students with disabilities. The CCSPD makes recommendations to the chancellor addressing these issues as well as developing, initiating and managing programs that further address the comprehensive concerns of persons with disabilities. The CCSPD is enthusiastic about working collaboratively with diverse communities on campus and building relationships with off-campus community organizations that advocate for persons with disabilities in order to help develop and maintain a supportive environment for all members of the university’s diverse population. This mission is motivated by the belief that people with disabilities are assets to the university, not liabilities.


Upcoming  Events


After much consideration, given the recent events with COVID-19 pandemic, the CCSPD Town Hall Subcommittee has decided to postpone the CCSPD Town Hall. As conditions improve, the town hall event will be hosted in the summer as an online only event, with an in person event in Fall 2020. If you have any questions concerning this or any other issues related to CCSPD please feel free to contact the Co-Chairs for Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Persons with Disabilities (CCSPD)
