The Georgia Institute of Technology is committed to providing both physical accessibility and access to information resources and technologies to individuals with disabilities.
The Institute's vision is to create a culture of access for an inclusive learning and working environment. The Institute's commitment to accessibility for all is highlighted in the numerous support, research, and product development centers on campus for students and employees with disabilities.
The Office of Disability Services, located in the Dean of Students Office, provides support and resource information for students with disabilities at the Institute. The Office of Disability Services serves Georgia Tech students with documented qualifying disabilities and operates under the guidelines of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act and its amendments (ADAAA).
Similarly, Employee Relations – located in the Office of Human Resources – provides support and resource information for employees and visitors with disabilities. Services are available to ensure that individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to pursue education and employment and to have access to campus programs, activities, and services.
In addition to the Georgia Tech Office of Disability Services and Employee Relations, the Institute is committed to adhering to accessibility legislation for publishing electronic information, as noted in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
