Opening Doors: 25 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act

March 1 - May 30, 2015, 3rd floor Lobby

On July 26, 1990, President George H. W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a landmark piece of civil rights legislation making it possible for Americans with disabilities to participate more fully in society. Twenty-five years later our world is more inclusive, but there is still more work to be done. Opening Doors is a PhotoVoice exhibit that shows some of the obstacles students impacted by physical, mental, and psychological disabilities face. The photos depict physical obstacles, social barriers and academic difficulties.
