About

We hope that you will join our NASPA and ACPA communities, as we commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, an important civil rights legislation signed into law on July 26th 1990. NASPA’s Disability Knowledge Community and ACPA’s Coalition for Disability will co-host a virtual event titled: “Advancing Access in Higher Education: 30 years post ADA ”, on Friday, July 24th from 2:00 – 3:00pm (ET).

NAPSA President, Dr. Kevin Kruger, and ACPA Vice President Danielle Morgan Acosta will commence our event followed by a moderated panel of accessibility and inclusion leaders in higher education. From the shifting physical landscape, to technological advances, and valuing the differences of all people, NASPA and ACPA have been leaders; cultivating a culture of disability inclusion within our professional associations. As we look to the future, it is important to reflect on our past and celebrate advancements in access while recognizing the work ahead.
