As a part of Georgia Tech’s commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Office of Equity and Compliance Programs established the Advocates for Accessibility Awards in 2023. The awards recognize campus individuals, departments, and programs who have actively worked to improve accessibility for people with disabilities in the Georgia Tech community.
Office of Information Technology staffers Dr. Warren Goetzel, director of Academic Technologies and Engagement, and Dr. James Logan, quality assurance manager, were among the inaugural honorees who have contributed to the work of accessibility through their leadership and expertise at the Advocates for Accessibility Awards Reception held on Nov. 15.
“Although I am truly honored to receive an Advocates for Accessibility Award, the real honor is being able to work with an amazing group of accessibility advocates at Georgia Tech,” Goetzel said. “Accessibility for all benefits the entire Tech community and contributes to a more just and equitable society.”
