Dear UIC Students:
In accordance with federal guidelines, this announcement is provided each semester to inform students and employees about the UIC Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy.
The University of Illinois at Chicago has a long-standing commitment to the support and maintenance of a drug-free environment for its students and employees. In keeping with this history, we would like to provide you with a link to the existing UIC Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Policy, which you will find below.
The policy and resource guide was prepared in accordance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989. It describes the health risks and legal sanctions associated with alcohol and other drugs. It outlines the University's standard of conduct and disciplinary actions taken against students or employees who violate the standard. It also provides university and community resources to help with a drug or alcohol related problem.
The AOD policy represents UIC’s continued commitment to creating a healthy learning and work environment. To ensure the success of this mission and to meet federal guidelines, this policy will be distributed annually to all UIC students and employees. Please familiarize yourself with the 2017-2018 UIC Alcohol and Other Drug Policy at http://go.uic.edu/aod.
Students should contact the Office of the Dean of Students at (312) 996-4857 with any questions. Employees should contact UIC Human Resources at (312) 996-0840 with any questions.

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
The Chancellor's Academic Professional Excellence (CAPE) Award, established in 1988, recognizes the demonstrated excellence of academic professional staff members and affirms our highest regard for the contributions of this important community to UIC. This year, six academic professionals will receive the CAPE Award which provides a $1,000 permanent increase to the honoree’s salary and a $2,000 one-time cash award.
Nominations are welcomed from UIC faculty, students, academic professionals, and support staff. I also encourage you to resubmit past nominees.
The nominating form, procedures, and eligibility criteria are online. The deadline for nominations and all supporting credentials is noon on June 29, 2018. Awards will be presented November 6th at the UIC Employee Recognition ceremony and reception at the Isadore and Sadie Dorin Forum at UIC. Details will follow closer to the event.
Please contact Ahlam Al-Kodmany, Chair of the 2018 CAPE Selection Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 5-6207 with any questions. Information will also be on the APAC website (under Resources/Awards & Recognition)
I look forward to celebrating our outstanding academic professionals this fall.
Michael D. Amiridis
I am delighted to announce a 2 percent, merit-based salary program for the 2018-19 academic year.
The program is another investment in our most valuable resource – you, our employees – and I am grateful for the recent approval of a full-year state budget that helps provide the funding and stability to recognize your hard work and commitment.
A competitive compensation program is essential to reward and retain the faculty and staff who are the very core of our excellence, and are lifting us toward our ambitious vision of an even brighter future. This new program reaffirms a commitment to annual, predictable pay raises that remained a priority even during a recent two-year state budget impasse that significantly reduced funding for operations.
The program will take effect Aug. 16, providing performance-based increases that will vary by individual but will average 2 percent across units. The merit-based program will be applicable to most academic and civil service employees, except for employees whose wages are set through the collective bargaining process. Those employees may be eligible for an increase based upon the negotiation process and the terms of the applicable collective bargaining agreement.
My deepest thanks for all you do to make the University of Illinois System a global leader in education and innovation, and a key engine of progress for our state.
