Michigan Tech is dedicated to assuring and enhancing opportunities for students with disabilities. We want to create a partnership with students, working together so that students learn life skills for self-advocating in a supportive environment.
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.
In Michigan, a person achieves adult status at age eighteen. Michigan Tech expects that every student will observe all federal and state laws, city ordinances, and University rules. Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the University’s community standards of behavior whenever their conduct can impact others. The basic idea may be expressed as: conduct yourself so as not to interfere with your neighbor’s rights. Although common sense, courtesy, and concern for others are excellent guidelines for appropriate conduct, specific policies and student conduct procedures also apply to student behavior.
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.
