Nondiscrimination in Services Policy

  • The AIU's Board of Directors endorses the concept of non-discrimination in conformance with Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

    Referrals of clients, the provisions of services, and admissions to programs shall be made without regard to race, color, religious creed, disability, ancestry, national origin (including limited English proficiency), age or sex.

    Program services shall be made accessible to eligible persons with disabilities through the most practical and economically feasible methods available.  These methods include, but are not limited to, equipment redesign, the provision of aides, and the use of alternative service delivery locations.  Structural modifications shall be considered only as a last resort among available methods.

    Any individual/client/patient/student (and/or their guardian) who believes they have been discriminated against may file a complaint of discrimination with Allegheny Intermediate Unit, 475 East Waterfront Drive, Homestead, PA 15120.
