The Policy Open Comment Period is a mechanism that provides the Georgia Tech campus community an opportunity to have a voice in the policy process on newly proposed Institute policies and when substantial changes are made to existing Institute policies. Two policies are being made available for comment. You may send comments via email to the respective policy contact (found within the policy) or Kelly Cross, the Institute Policy Manager at Due to layout changes only clean copies of the policies are attached. If you would like a redlined copy, please email

The policies will be available for comment until April 7, 2023.
