Georgetown University’s Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Affirmative Action (IDEAA) is responsible for coordinating the University’s compliance with Title I of the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, as amended, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, for applicants and current employees, including, staff, AAPs, faculty, and students. To request an accommodation, staff and faculty should contact IDEAA at (202) 687-4798 or you may submit a disability accommodation request form for an applicant or an employee. Students at the Main Campus and Medical Center should contact the Academic Resource Center at http://academicsupport.georgetown.edu/. Students at the Law Center should contact the Office of Disability Services at http://www.law.georgetown.edu/campus-life/disability-services/.
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability. It is a part of the University’s Equal Employment Opportunity and Non-discrimination in Employment policy to comply with the ADA. Under the ADA, a qualified individual with a disability who can perform the essential functions of the job with or without a reasonable accommodation is protected from discrimination due to his or her disability. Employees related to or associated with a person with a disability are also protected from discrimination.
To ensure that all requests for reasonable accommodations are given full consideration, supervisors, managers, and department chairs may not grant or deny an accommodation pursuant to the ADA without consultation with IDEAA, which is responsible for ensuring compliance with the ADA.
The following person has been designated to coordinate Georgetown University's compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabiliation Act of 1973:
