Update on Disability Cultural Center and Disability Resource Center

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

This is an update on the new structure for the Disability Cultural Center and Disability Resource Center and their services and programs to the UIC community.

The new Disability Cultural Center is currently housed in the Daley Library, room 1-461. Students are welcome to stop by between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday to visit and meet the staff and other students. The center is engaged in cultural programming and community outreach, joining the other Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change. Roxana Stupp will be directing the center during this time of transition. The DCC reports to Amalia Pallares, Associate Chancellor and Vice Provost for Diversity.

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is open Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. It will remain in the Student Services Building, room 1190. The center now reports to Caryn Bills, Associate Chancellor for the Office for Access and Equity (OAE). Danielle Earls, Assistant Director in OAE, will be temporarily assisting at the DRC. OAE and the DRC reaffirm their commitment to providing accommodations and access to all students with disabilities and to working collaboratively with faculty, staff, and University services across the campus to provide students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of the educational experience at UIC, while maintaining compliance with relevant federal and state laws.
