The ADA Turns 30

One month from today, the Americans with Disabilities Act will turn 30! Oregon State University’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Access invites you to learn more about this important piece of legislation and to celebrate the history of disabled activism that brought it to fruition. On this site, you can also learn more about accessibility, access services for disabled students, and disabled community at OSU and in Corvallis.

Signed into law by then-President George H.W. Bush in 1990, the ADA turns 30 on July 26, 2020. As civil rights law, the ADA prohibits discrimination against and guarantees equal opportunity for people with disabilities in the U.S. The ADA represents years of activism and political campaigning by disabled Americans.

Visit this site through Summer 2020 and the 2020-2021 academic year to keep up-to-date on ADA30 news and events on campus and in the Corvallis community.
