Waubonsee to Celebrate 25th Anniversary of ADA Signing

SUGAR GROVE - Waubonsee Community College will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) during a short ceremony on Oct. 28. The comprehensive civil rights legislation was signed into law on July 26, 1990 and prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability.

During the ceremony, Waubonsee President Dr. Christine Sobek will sign a proclamation affirming the college’s continued commitment to full ADA compliance, and speak about the significance of the legislation, as well as Waubonsee’s celebrated history of being at the forefront of accessibility.

The ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. in the Student Center lobby at the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive. The event is free and open to the public.

In addition to the ceremony this month, Waubonsee continues work on accessibility through an inclusive campus committee, a student organization and the Access Center for Disability Resources.
