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 the Outreach Building (Innovation Park) from November 20, 21, & 22.

There will be a wide variety of sessions covering topics such as document accessibility, laws, universal design for learning, EPUB, and audio description. All faculty and staff are welcome to attend any or all sessions free of charge.


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

Schedule and Locations

There will be two conference tracks (A and B) running simultaneously in different rooms in the Outreach Building. Please view the detailed schedule for topics, times, and room locations.

Food and Drink Options

The Outreach building has a “snack shop” on the third floor where you can purchase soda, water, and various snack foods with cash. There is a vending machine on the first floor where you can buy bottled beverages with a card.

The nearby Penn Stater offers two options for lunch: Legends and the Gardens.

You are welcome to bring food with you to the sessions.


You may park in the Outreach Building parking lot if you have an Orange permit, or you can park in a metered space. There is additional free parking at the Penn Stater across the street. And if you want to take the bus, the building is on the Red Link bus line.
