If you have a disability and need a reasonable accommodation for equal access to education or services at Michigan Tech, please call the Dean of Students Office, at 487-2212. For other concerns about discrimination, you may contact your advisor, Chair/Dean of your academic unit or the Institutional Equity Office, at 487-3310.”
The purpose of this form is to assist the Institutional Equity Office in determining whether, or to what extent, a reasonable accommodation for an employee with a disability is required to perform one or more essential functions of their job safely and effectively. The employee must initiate this request for an accommodation. The information will be treated confidentially.
The ADVANCE Initiative at Michigan Tech seeks to improve the recruitment, retention and promotion of women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) by increasing the diversity and quality of the faculty applicant pool, increasing the number of women hired into STEM tenured/tenure-track faculty positions, and assisting all our faculty members in the achievement of successful careers at Michigan Tech.
If a person feels that his or her treatment has been unfairly discriminatory, he or she is encouraged to file a complaint. These procedures are intended to be used in any case of alleged harassment and/or discriminatory actions on the basis of a person’s race, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, height, weight, genetic information, or marital status, veteran status, disability, etc.
It is the policy of Michigan Technological University not to discriminate on the basis of disability. Michigan Technological University has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Section 504 and the ADA prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability in any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
