What is IDHD?
IDHD Mission Statement
Our mission is to promote the independence, productivity and inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of society.
Academics and community engagement
A national leader in disability education, research and service, we serve as a bridge between the University of Illinois at Chicago and the community in our state and beyond.
We're the only UCEDD that's also an academic department
Our work is informed and facilitated by a collaborative network. Our partners and affiliated programs help make sure that the work we do as a team has the greatest impact for our community.
Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
We receive our core funding from the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) within the Administration for Community Living, US Department of Health and Human Services: grant number 90-DD-0010-01-00.
