Invitation for Voluntary Disability Survey

To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From: Associate Chancellor Ashish Sahni

As a friendly reminder, if you have not already done so, please take a moment to complete the one-question voluntary survey emailed to all UC staff and academic employees on or around April 3rd, from the following sender The email you received contains a link to the voluntary survey. UC hired VR Election Service (VRES) to administer the survey on its behalf. The email included a unique PIN that VRES assigned to each individual to use with the survey. You must enter the PIN and the month and date of your birth to authenticate that you are the person taking the survey. Responses must be submitted by Saturday, May 17, 2014.

The one-question survey, which allows employees to identify themselves as disabled, is required of federal government contractors as part of recent changes to federal regulations. UC receives billions of dollars in federal contracts and grants annually and is one of the largest government contractors.
