What is the MyDisclosure Application?
MyDisclosure is an online application that is anticipated to be released by August 2015. It will replace the paper based Report of Non-University Activities (RNUA) disclosure as well as sponsor-specific (e.g., NIH, PHS, NSF) disclosure processes. MyDisclosure is part of the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research START myResearch initiative. The goal of START myResearch and MyDisclosure is to give faculty, staff, investigators and administrators web-based access to administrative data. For more information about START myResearch please visit, http://web.uillinois.edu/start_myresearch/
Who should attend?
Any faculty, staff or students are welcome to attend the session to preview the upcoming disclosure application. The open forums are aimed at anyone who is required by University Policy to make a disclosure or review a disclosure related to conflict of commitment or interest, whether for annual reporting or sponsor specific disclosure requirements.
What will I learn?
You will learn about the OVCR’s plan to release the application to the campus and what you can do as an employee making a disclosure or as an administrator to prepare for the online system. The presentation includes a brief demonstration of the MyDisclosure application.
If you have any questions, please contact COI@uic.edu.

Are you the kind of person who spends hours the Art Institute, savoring every last brushstroke and wall label? Would you skip out on soccer games and study groups to catch the Hull House Museum's latest community workshop? Are you more into MoMA than movies? Do you believe that an exhibition is more than just a nice display--that museums can transform culture and communities for the better?
If that's you, consider the School of Art & Art History's new minor in Museum & Exhibition Studies.
The Minor in Museum & Exhibition Studies (MUSE minor) is an interdisciplinary program promoting critical and creative thinking that serves as a laboratory for imaginative, justice-focused approaches to the work of cultural institutions. The MUSE minor supplements major courses of study with classroom-based and onsite experiences with museums, galleries, community centers, and digital spaces.
The minor's three core classes challenge students to consider who uses museums and exhibitions and why, and how cultural sites can vitalize communities with transformative content and programming. Electives allow students to deepen their knowledge and gain experience in public history, art curation, museum anthropology, inclusive exhibition design, and more.
Requirements: AH 180, AH 206, and AH 302 (9 credit hours); electives chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor (6 credit hours)
Contact: Therese Quinn (Director, Museum and Exhibition Studies) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Alexandra Graves (MUSE Minor Academic Advisor) at email@example.com
