Pregnancy and Parenting

N.C. A&T is committed to maintaining an equitable learning and working environment and supporting the academic and professional success of pregnant and parenting students and employees. The University prohibits discrimination based on parental status, pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery from related conditions in all of its educational programs and activities.  

Title IX Protects:  

  • Pregnant students and employees; 
  • Parenting students and employees; 
  • Recently pregnant students and employees; 
  • Pregnancy loss, miscarriage, and abortion; and 
  • Adopting and fostering parents.  

Students and employees may notify the Title IX Coordinator of their or their partner’s pregnancy, pregnancy-related condition, or adoption and fostering. Students and employees who adopt or foster children are entitled to the same rights and benefits as birth parents. When necessary, the Title IX Coordinator can create a coordinated approach to short term accommodations, maternity or paternity leave, and academic or employment accommodations due to medical necessity or extraordinary parenting or caretaking responsibilities. Students and employees may request reasonable accommodations for pregnancy- and parenting-related conditions.
