25 year anniversary: The Americans with
Disabilities Act

Penn State joins the rest of the nation in celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which was enacted on July 26, 1990. The Americans with Disabilities Act is a monumental piece of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in employment, State and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation.

Penn State has been a champion of providing equal access to individuals with disabilities long before the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act. You are invited to view a video that highlights Penn State’s commitment to equal access for students, faculty, staff and the many individuals with disabilities who visit our campuses.
