This year Penn State is sponsoring streamed sessions from the Accessing Higher Ground accessibility conference in November. For those at the University Park campus, the following sessions will be hosted at Innovation Park from November 15, 16, & 17.

This year’s conference will offer a wide variety of sessions covering topics like audio description, accessibility in higher ed, web testing and evaluations, and accessible formats for instructional materials. All faculty and staff are welcome to attend any sessions, and recordings will be made available at a later date.


Please complete the registration form whether you plan to attend in person or view recordings.
