Guided by the belief that people with disabilities are assets to the University, UIC is committed to the full inclusion and participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of university life. UIC strives to create an environment where all students, faculty, staff, and visitors may fully participate in all the University's programs, services, and activities. UIC works to identify and remove any barriers that prevent the full participation of anyone with a disability.

UIC welcomes and values all applicants and employees with disabilities. The University complies with all the employment non-discrimination requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Illinois Human Rights Act. Applicants or employees requiring reasonable accommodations should visit the Employment Accommodation Procedure page.

Service Animal Policy

Individuals with service animals are welcomed in the University's offices, even where pets are generally prohibited. Please visit the UIC Service Animal Policy for information on service animals.
