Credo joins with our client campuses to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into law on July 26, 1990. A long legal and political struggle arose, in part, from a protest and the occupation of a federal building in San Francisco in 1977, demanding an end to discrimination against the disabled.
While the ADA transformed our built environment in ways we now take for granted—curb cuts, ramps, elevators, wider doors, and so on—it was even more significant in providing access to learning opportunities for students who had been kept out of schools. Thank you, parent advocates, faculty, and staff around the country, for all your efforts and special thanks to our friends at Beacon College in Leesburg, Florida, the first accredited college offering four-year degrees for students with learning differences and ADHD.
Most of all, thank you to students with disabilities who have persisted in their pursuit of learning; in doing so, they have enriched higher education.
