The University of Illinois System strives to be an inclusive environment, which includes giving you the opportunity to specify your race/ethnicity to the university. A new option has been added to My UI Info which will allow you to indicate Middle Eastern or North African (MENA) as your race/ethnicity if you identify as such.
To make changes to your profile:
- Log in to My UI Info using your NetID and Password.
- Select the Edit button in the Race/Ethnicity Status section of the page.
- Select the appropriate group(s) to identify yourself based on race.
- Select Submit to save your changes.
Note: While the university has added MENA to My UI Info, this value has not yet been adopted by the Federal government for regulatory reporting. For federal reporting purposes, employees who have identified themselves as MENA are classified in the “White” category and will be reported as such.
These changes have been made to the university’s employee systems. Updates to the university’s student systems will be communicated separately at the appropriate time.
