NOTICE UNDER THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT AND THE REHABILITATION ACT
The Georgia Institute of Technology ("Georgia Tech") shall comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and its amendments of 2008, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, as well as the regulations implementing these laws (Collectively, “ADA” , "ADAAA" and “Rehab. Act”, respectively).
Renovations and additions to Georgia Tech facilities, as well as new construction since effective dates of the ADA and Rehab Act, shall be carried out in accordance with the ADA and Rehab Act standards for accessible design.
The ADA provides that no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of the disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any public entity. The ADA also requires Georgia Tech to make reasonable modifications in policies, practices, or procedures when the modifications are necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability, unless the public entity can demonstrate that making the modifications would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity.
Georgia Tech provides services and reasonable accommodations to currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate/professional students with disabilities. Our mission is to provide students with disabilities equal access to the services, programs and activities of the Institute so that they may, as independently as possible, meet the demands of University life. Students who require accommodations should contact the Office of Disability Services (www.disabilityservices.gatech.edu).
Employees who require accommodations to perform their job duties should contact Human Resources Disability Services, Employee Relations (http://ohr.gatech.edu/resources/employeerelations/disability).
In addition to the Office of Disability Services and Employee Relations, Georgia Tech is committed to adhering to accessibility legislation for publishing electronic information, as noted in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
If you are an individual which includes visitors with a disability who may require assistance or accommodation in order to participate in or receive the benefit of a service, program, or activity of Georgia Tech, or if you desire more information, you may contact the coordinator of the specific service, program or activity involved or the undersigned ADA Coordinator at the address and telephone number below.
