Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Blacks
The Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Blacks (CCSB) serves as an advisory body on matters pertaining to the academic, professional, and social aspects of African and African American life at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). CCSB addresses issues relating to campus governance, employment practices, public relations, student affairs and other issues that affect the well being of Blacks on campus. The Committee works collaboratively with UIC’s diverse community.
UIC is among the nation’s most diverse universities. We consider diversity a strength that contributes to the success of our students, staff, faculty, and institutional research. Neither diminished state support nor a more challenging financial environment should deter us from our commitment to diversity.
UIC established the Chancellor’s Status Committees to assist the campus community in supporting our diverse students, faculty, and staff. Every year, faculty, staff, and students are nominated by existing committee members and appointed annually by the Chancellor as an official executive committee member. Their participation reflects the importance of service to the university and reflects the diversity of our campus. Involvement in Status Committee meetings is open to the entire UIC community and supported by the Chancellor thereby considered approved for employee participation. Chancellor Amiridis encourages the campus to call upon the Status Committees to seek their assistance or take part in their efforts.
All Status Committees are administered through UIC’s Office of Diversity.
