Web accessibility is a shared, continuous responsibility for members of the Penn community involved in the development, creation or publishing or sharing of digital resources.
The Weingarten Center provides academic support services and programs for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at Penn through its two offices, the Office of Learning Resources and Student Disabilities Services. The services and programs of both offices are free and confidential.
Student Disabilities Services
Student Disabilities Services, specifically, provides comprehensive, professional services and programs for students who self-identify with disabilities to ensure equal academic opportunities and participation in University-sponsored programs.
