Arlington College opened its doors to 75 students in 1895.  Today, that number will not even fill a large lecture hall on the University of Texas at Arlington campus. From land expansion to structural development, student population growth, and academic advancement, UTA has survived eight name changes and, at times, a tenuous existence to become one of the finest academic facilities worldwide.

“Building a Barrier-Free Campus” explores how UTA began to become a model accessible campus for students with disabilities starting in the mid-1960s—a time when disabled students had no right to attend K-12 schools or college. The exhibit covers a broad timeline (mid-1960s to today) and introduces viewers to both UTA’s status as a leader in disability accessibility today and the multi-championship-winning Movin’ Mavs adapted sports program.

Hobby became Director of the Women's Army Corps and the first Army woman to earn the rank of colonel. President Eisenhower chose her as Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, making her the second woman in history to be appointed to a president's cabinet.
