Ortner Center on Violence & Abuse in Relationships


The Center is composed of faculty and students from the Annenberg School for Communication, the Perelman School of Medicine, the School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Dental Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Social Policy & Practice, and Wharton. 


In addition to illustrating Penn's commitment to cross-School collaborations, the Center focuses on a topic that is not the purview of any one academic discipline. Multiple disciplines are contributing to our understanding of violence against women and violence in families.
