Americans with Disabilities Act
On July 26th, 1990 President George H.W. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure the civil rights of people with disabilities. This landmark legislation has helped open doors for every person with a disability.
Additionally, the ADA has broadened opportunities for Americans with disabilities by prohibiting discrimination, reducing barriers, changing perceptions and increasing full participation in all aspects of life including working, living, and learning.
John Carroll University would like to commemorate this key moment in history and recognize the progress made since 1990. We must remain committed to diversity, equity and inclusion as it relates to persons with disabilities. We must continue to find new and better ways for every individual with a disability to participate fully and meaningfully in our campus life and in society. Together, as a campus community, we will continue to strive toward inclusion and accessibility.
