Our office provides education, oversight, and guidance with the adherence to applicable state and federal laws, regulations, professional standards, and Institute policies as it applies to ADA/504 and Title IX. As a resource to the Georgia Tech community, we encourage your contact for assistance in the navigation of any compliance-related concerns.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal funding.
Title IX requires educational programs and activities that receive federal funding to operate in a nondiscriminatory manner, including with respect to recruitment, admissions, financial aid, athletics, sex-based harassment, pregnancy, discipline and employment. Retaliation against an individual for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy or for initiating, participating in, or refusing to participate in a complaint action under Title IX is also prohibited.
Georgia Tech is committed to equal opportunity in employment and education for persons with disabilities and complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and 2008 (ADA and ADAAA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination and may be entitled to accommodations that will assist in their pursuits at the Institute. Employees should direct requests for accommodations to their supervisors and may seek assistance through the Institute Office of Human Resources. Students should direct requests for accommodations to the Office of Disability Services in the Division of Student Life.
