Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Starting in 1980, the campus made architectural and landscaping changes to accommodate disabled students. The changes were implemented to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which required schools to meet specifications of easy accessibility to classrooms. This is a shot of sidewalk widening along Chapman Avenue to accommodate students in wheelchairs. Other projects were refitting restrooms, new elevators, curb cuts, ramps, lowered public telephones and drinking fountains, and added bridges between buildings. In 1980, when the work was started, the campus had 126 disabled students.
