Accessibility

We believe a diverse and inclusive learning community strengthens our entire university and enriches learning, scholarship, and the communities we serve.  As such, the University of Pittsburgh is committed to ensuring equal access to all to all members of our community. 

There are approximately 34,000 students, 5,000 faculty, and 7,000 staff at the University of Pittsburgh.  Our mission is to create a digital environment that they can all freely, independently, and easily access.  

The digital accessibility coordinator, along with a team of professionals from across the University, is responsible for coordinating and reviewing the compliance program related to the EIT Accessibility Policy as well as providing training and support to meet the goals of that policy.
