As part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the UCLA Committee on Disability (UCOD) has launched its new site: http://www.accessweb.ucla.edu/ucod http://ucod.ucla.edu
The objective of the site is to ensure that information about disability issues and events at UCLA is accessible. The website includes a section on the committee members as well as UCOD’s meeting schedule, events and news, and annual reports. The site also features a resource list and frequently asked questions ( FAQ) about UCOD.
The UCOD was established in 1983 as an advisory group by the Chancellor. UCOD is comprised of students, faculty, staff, alumni, members of the UCLA Community, and ex-officio members. The Committee’s charge is to analyze and identify problems, propose solutions, and make recommendations on matters of particular concern to persons with disabilities. To facilitate the Committee’s activities the Chancellor’s ADA & 504 Compliance Office reserves UCOD meeting rooms, provides courtesy parking for off-campus voting members and distributes meeting minutes and proposed agendas.
