Temporary Service Changes

The Office of Student Integrity (OSI) remains committed to promoting and upholding Georgia Tech's core value of integrity. Based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Georgia Department of Public Health recommendations to limit personal contact to reduce the risk of infection, OSI is implementing the following temporary service changes. 

 

These changes are in effect from Monday, March 16, 2020 through the end of the semester:

  • All in-person OSI seminars, scheduled hearings, and events are cancelled.
  • All OSI staff members are available via email or telephone to assist students during this time. 
  • OSI staff members can be reached at osi@mail.gatech.edu or 404.894.2566.  If you prefer to call and leave a voicemail, please note that staff members will check voice messages several times each business day, and the office’s goal is to respond within 24 business hours upon receipt.
  • OSI staff will continue to contact students regarding referred student code of conduct violations. Staff members will email meeting request notifications with specific instructions for students to follow regarding the referred violation(s). Students are expected to follow these instructions to schedule a remote meeting with their assigned OSI staff member. 
  • For general questions about the conduct process or office operations, please contact osi@mail.gatech.edu.
  • For questions about sanction deadlines or holds, please contact the OSI staff member who emailed the decision outcome. Contact information is available in the decision outcome letter and at osi.gatech.edu/staff.
  • For faculty and staff assistance submitting an incident report or requesting a status update, please contact Andrew Lawrence, Assistant Director of Student Integrity, at andrew.lawrence@studentlife.gatech.edu.

Honor Advisory Council (HAC) Assistance and Sanctions
