The policy of this college is consistent with the requirements and objectives of Executive Order 11246, 11701 and Title IX. It is our objective to obtain without discrimination individuals qualified and/or trainable for positions by virtue of job related standards of education, training, experience or personal qualifications. In conformance with the provisions of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the applicable regulations of Sections 503 and 504 and the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Southern Polytechnic State University does not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment or against any student or applicant for admission because of a physical or mental handicap in regard to any position for which the employee or student is qualified.
