The University Coordinating Council (UCC)

The University Coordinating Council (UCC) is an internal university partnership that assures CDS programs are responsive to national initiatives and the university’s academic program objectives. UCC membership consists of representatives from departments, colleges, and programs at the University of Hawai‘i, which interface with training and research activities focused upon persons with disabilities and their families.
