Mission Statement

The purpose of the Office of Disability Services is to improve the education experience of students with disabilities and to enhance the understanding and support within the Institute through equitable access, accommodations, and the provision of programs and services.

The Office of Disability Services collaborates with students, faculty, and staff to create a campus environment that is usable, equitable, sustainable, and inclusive of all members of the Georgia Tech community. ODS views disability as an aspect of diversity that is integral to society and Georgia Tech. If students encounter academic, physical, technological, or other barriers on campus, the ODS team works collaboratively to find creative solutions and implement reasonable accommodations.

The core responsibility of the Office is to ensure that the Institute maintains its compliance with the federal regulations that protect the rights of individuals with disabilities in the educational environment. The Office determines and coordinates reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities through their educational career at Georgia Tech.
