National Science Foundation Nondiscrimination Statement
North Georgia Technical College (“Grantee”) receives grant funds from the National Science Foundation (“NSF”).
Grantee complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 USC § 2000d) (prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin), Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 USC §§ 1681 et seq.) (prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in Federally assisted education programs or activities), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 USC § 794) (prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability);, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975 (42 USC §§ 6101 et seq.) (prohibits discrimination on the basis of age), and all regulations and policies issued by NSF pursuant to these statutes.
In addition to statutory prohibitions, Executive Order (E.O.) 11246 bars various types of discriminatory employment practices under grants for construction, and E.O. 13166 “Improving Access to Services for Persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP)” requires government agencies to take steps to provide meaningful access to its programs and activities to members of the public who are limited in their English proficiency, including recipients’ programs and activities.
To that end, in accordance with the above-referenced nondiscrimination statutes and executive orders, and NSF’s implementing regulations and policies, no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which the Grantee receives Federal financial assistance from NSF.
When Grantee receives a complaint alleging discrimination under any of these statutes and the complainant requests that NSF conduct the investigation, the original complaint is to be sent to the Director, Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), National Science Foundation,, 2415 Eisenhower Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22314.
