To ensure the intellectual richness of research and education, the University of Chicago seeks to provide an environment conducive to learning, teaching, working, and conducting research that values the diversity of its community. The University strives to be supportive of the academic, personal and work-related needs of each individual and is committed to facilitating the full participation of students with a disability in the life of the University.
RSOs can work to provide resources, support and accommodations for all students with disabilities and works to remove physical and attitudinal barriers, which may prevent their full participation in the University and RSO community. There are a number of resources available including the RSO Accessibility Checklist, a guide to Communicating with Individuals with Disabilities, and Student Disability Services. Work with your RSO advisor to help create an inclusive space for all.
