The Chronic Illness Initiative

DePaul University’s School for New Learning (SNL)

Director, Lynn Royster, Ph.D.


The Chronic Illness Initiative provides access to higher education for the chronically-ill student who has had difficulty meeting the requirements of a conventional college program.  The CII is designed for those who struggle with chronic illnesses that unpredictably increase and decrease in severity, such as asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, or illnesses with frequent hospitalizations such as cancer or heart disease. 


Other programs offered through SNL:


Inside Track - This program is designed for students with chronic illness, ages 18-23, who are interested in earning a degree or who would like to explore the college experience within the supportive environment of the Chronic Illness Initiative.


Distance Program - The chronically ill student can arrange to complete an undergraduate degree totally online without having to set foot on campus.
