University Committee for Persons with Disabilities (UCPD)
University Committee for Persons with Disabilities (UCPD) is a committee that advises the University, through the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, in achieving its mission to reflect the diverse characteristics of the region with regard to employees and students with disabilities, to foster in all campus members a sense of inclusiveness, respect for human differences, and concern for others, and to encourage the participation of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of University life.
Pursuant to California State University (CSU) Executive Order 926, each campus shall establish a standing committee on Disability Access and Compliance involving the ADA compliance officer/coordinator and representatives from Academic Affairs, Business and Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Parking, Procurement, Student Services, one student representative appointed by the Associated Students, Inc., one faculty member appointed by the Academic Senate, and one staff representative. In addition, the committee may include approved ex-officio members, to discuss, monitor, and evaluate campus-specific issues relating to compliance with the executive order and applicable federal and state laws and regulations. The CSU Chancellor’s Office may request reports on campus compliance with all aspects of CSU executive order 926 on an as needed basis.
