MAYS LANDING — Atlantic Cape Community College and the Center for Accessibility (CFA) is proud to recognize the month of July as Americans with Disabilities Awareness Month.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law on July 26, 1990. The ADA is a highly-consequential equal opportunity law for people living with disabilities. The ADA draws its inspiration - in part - from the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The goal of the ADA is to prevent discrimination, expand opportunities and provide legal protections to ensure that Americans with disabilities have the opportunity to lead a full life.

To whom does the ADA apply?

“To be protected by the ADA, one must have a disability, which is defined by the ADA as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment. The ADA does not specifically name all of the impairments that are covered,” the website explains.

“The CFA is committed to working within the spirit of the ADA while providing services and leadership to increase accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities among Atlantic Cape students, staff, visitors, and the larger community,” said Chad Bullock, Director, The Center for Accessibility.
