UC embraces diversity in the workplace and is committed to providing a supportive environment for all faculty, staff and students. This October, as we celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we ask all of UC’s faculty and staff to help assess UC’s efforts at becoming a more inclusive community by completing a voluntary one-question survey about their disability status. The survey will be open from October 7 through November 15, 2019.
As a recipient of Federal funds, the University of California and other Federal government contractors are required to invite employees to self-identify their disability status every five (5) years. Although your participation is completely voluntary, we encourage you to take a minute to complete the one-question survey as soon as you receive it. UC will use the data collected to measure our employment practices and recruitment efforts, and the quality of our data depends on the participation of as many faculty and staff as possible.
UC provides reasonable accommodation to employees who are disabled or become disabled and need assistance to perform the essential functions of their positions. If you need accommodations, please reach out to the disability manager at your location. For more information, see the Staff policy on reasonable accommodations or the Reasonable accommodation policy for academic appointees.
If you are a manager who supervises UC Berkeley employees without email access, please circulate this information to all.
