The University of Illinois at Chicago is entering the final stage of an NCAA Athletics Certification Self-Study. Athletic certification is meant to ensure the institution's commitment to integrity in intercollegiate athletics, and one of the goals is to open the affairs of athletics to the university community and the public.

To this end, UIC's Self-Study Committee has placed a revised second draft of the self-study instrument on reserve in two campus libraries-the Richard J. Daley Library, 801 S. Morgan St., and the Library of the Health Sciences, 1750 W. Polk St.-where it is available for public review and comment.

The self-study comprises four broad areas: governance and commitment to rules compliance; academic integrity; fiscal integrity; and equity, welfare and sportsmanship.

The document will be on reserve in the libraries until June 1.

"We are very interested in receiving comments from the community," says Jennifer Woodard, deputy associate chancellor at UIC.

Comments should be directed to Woodard in the Office of the Chancellor, MC 102, 601 S. Morgan St., Chicago, Illinois 60607, (312) 355-1795; jwoodard@uic.edu
