Access UChicago Now

Access UChicago Now

The University of Chicago Office for Access and Equity, Student Disability Services, and Employee and Labor Relations serve members of the University community with disabilities and partner with students, faculty and staff to support an inclusive and welcoming learning and work environment.

The Office for Access and Equity, Student Disability Services, and Employee and Labor Relations in partnership with the D+I Studio created a new initiative, Access UChicago Now, to increase awareness about campus accessibility and to solicit feedback from members of our community about their experiences and perspectives related to access and inclusion of people with disabilities at the University.

What is it? Access UChicago Now is a campaign and an assessment tool. Access UChicago Now provides information about existing accessibility resources to the campus community and hosts individual and small group conversations as well as a town hall with interested participants.

What is the timeline?  Access UChicago Now launched spring quarter 2019 and will host individual and small group conversations with interested participants through summer quarter 2019. Access UChicago Now plans to host a town hall to share learnings and invite members of the campus community to create solutions during autumn quarter 2019. Access UChicago Now will share recommendations stemming from this work with the campus community in winter quarter 2020. 

How do I sign up? If you are interested in participating, please email thestudio@uchicago.edu or call 773-843-4967. Identifying information of interview participants will not be published or revealed.

Please check back for additional updates on this campaign.
