The 2016 report identified three health-related needs focus areas: addressing the social determinants of health; improving access to care; and reducing the risk of chronic disease or the impact of chronic disease on health. The full report is available here.<br /><br />As part of our efforts to address these health-related needs, we have been collaborating with Rush University Medical Center and Cook County Health & Hospital System on a new initiative. On January 10, 2017, a group of people and organizations committed to the West Side of Chicago gathered to discuss what more we could do together to improve health, wellness, and economic vitality in our communities. We came up with some ideas to launch the conversation, and we are working to turn these ideas into a vision.<br /><br />A report entitled "What We Heard", which summarizes the great ideas, input, and suggestions that were shared at this meeting is available here. I invite interested UIC faculty, staff, and students to read the report and help us to improve the concepts presented. This report is just the first step, but it is a step in the direction of improving equity and closing the health disparity gap on Chicago's West Side.<br /><br />I invite you to join us for a series of community conversations to discuss these ideas in more detail and help us identify the concrete next steps we, the West Side community, can take together.<br /><br />Meeting information is below. We hope you can join us. Register for the Community Conversations here.<br /><br /> <br /><br />Sincerely,<br />Robert Barish<br />Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs<br /><br />Logistics:<br /><br />Date: March 29, 2017<br />Location: YMCA of Metro Chicago (1030 West Van Buren)<br />Time: 10am – 12pm<br /><br />OR<br /><br />Date: March 30, 2017<br />Location: Mile Square (1220 S.

Unfortunately, and sadly, additional posters have been found on campus and we write once again to reaffirm that these actions do not reflect the values we hold as a community. As stated in our earlier communication, UIC strives to be an environment free of discrimination in all of its forms and we strongly encourage everyone in our community to respect these principles.<br /><br />Much of the vitality of our campus is because of the diversity of thought and perspectives that exist here. The same laws that allow for that vitality also allow for speech that can be offensive and create discomfort and even fear. Though there are some exceptions to the First Amendment’s protections, they are highly circumscribed and not available to prevent or punish the posting on public bulletin boards of ideas that many find deeply offensive.<br /><br />What is available is our choice to demonstrate mutual support and respect for each other by coming together to denounce bigotry and hatred. There are also numerous resources [http://diversity.uic.edu/uic-student-resources/] and campus organizations to support students, faculty, and staff. <br /><br />We care deeply about all members of our community and we are committed to maintaining a campus climate that respects tolerance, inclusion and diversity.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Michael D.

Halsted St. Witnesses observed the offender, who is not affiliated with UIC, sitting on the victim while choking her. The witnesses contacted authorities but the offender, who is known to the victim, immediately fled the scene. UIC Police canvased the area but did not locate the offender. The offender is described as a 22-year-old black male, 5-9 in height, 185 pounds, wearing a gray zip-up jacket, black sweat pants, and a UIC beanie hat. The victim refused medical attention.<br /><br />Anyone with information is asked to call the UIC Police Department at 312-996-2830.<br /><br />Approximate crime location mapped: https://goo.gl/maps/suZKgYu6Bko <br /><br />UIC Police offer the following security tips:<br /><br />-- Report crime promptly to police.<br />-- To contact the UIC Police, call 312-355-5555 for emergencies or 312-996-2830 for non-emergencies. Set up the UICPD emergency number on your mobile phone speed-dial.<br />--On campus, look for the location of the nearest emergency call box (there are more than 1,500 across campus.)<br />-- For confidential counseling, contact Counseling Services at 312-996-3490 for students; and Employee Assistance Service at 312-996-3588 for faculty and staff.<br />-- Any student, staff or faculty member at UIC who experiences sexual assault, domestic/dating violence or stalking can access free, anonymous and confidential services by calling the Campus Advocacy Network (CAN) at 312-413-8206.<br /><br />---------------------------------------------------------------------------<br />A Public Safety Advisory is distributed to the university community in compliance with the federal Clery Act. UIC Police may also issue notifications for off-campus crimes in the interest of public-safety awareness. Security tips are standard precautions, not special or incident-specific measures.

Such actions do not reflect the values we hold as a community. Acts that invoke hatred or violence toward members of our community will not be tolerated on our campus.<br /><br />This event makes it necessary for us to reaffirm our collective commitment to two fundamental principles: the first is the importance of tolerance, inclusion and diversity to our university community and the second is the right to free expression that ensures we are a place of open inquiry and learning. Both of these principles are fundamental to who we are and what we aspire to be as a university.<br /><br />As we investigate this recent event, we strongly encourage all members of our university to exercise their right to free speech in a manner that recognizes these principles and avoids prejudice or stereotypes. Doing otherwise hurts our community as a whole. It is imperative that we be a welcoming environment for all our students, faculty and staff. UIC strives to be an environment free of invidious discrimination in all of its forms, including discrimination based on race, color, religion, disability, national origin, citizenship status, gender identity and sexual orientation. All are welcome at UIC and we care equally about every member of our community.<br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Michael D.

He also contributed to the University’s effort to obtain federal re-designation as an Asian American, Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution, as well as designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution.<br /><br />Under his leadership, the Office of Diversity launched a university-wide inclusive language campaign called “Words Matter!” to promote awareness and intellectual engagement with the impact our language has on others and our responsibility to promote inclusion. In partnership with the Center for Teaching and Learning Communities, the Office of Diversity developed and conducted workshops on promoting an inclusive classroom and identifying and addressing microaggression.<br /><br />The Office of Diversity, in partnership with the Office of Institutional Research, created a rich array of data sources and metrics (e.g. Diversity Profile and Diversity at a Glance) and built a strong foundation for data-driven decision-making that will serve us well moving forward. As a result of these accomplishments, UIC has garnered national recognition as a leader among its peer institutions in advancing access, equity, and inclusion. UIC twice received the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award from INSIGHT into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity-focused publication in higher education – a national honor bestowed upon universities that demonstrate an exemplary commitment to diversity and inclusion.<br /><br />Please join us in thanking Tyrone for his strategic leadership in fostering a more equitable and inclusive university environment and wishing him every success in his research endeavors. A national search will be underway to identify his successor. <br /><br />Sincerely,<br /><br />Michael D.
