The RIIC provides services, training, and research that supports the independence, inclusion, and participation of people with disabilities.

  • Our community services include assistive technology demonstration and equipment loan to enable independence at home, school, work, and in the community. 
  • Training includes Living Well with a Disability, a health promotion program that helps participants reach quality of life goals through healthy lifestyles.
  • Research areas include rural transportation and employment options to support economic independence.  The 40+ RIIC projects focus on employment, independent and healthy living, education, accessible housing, and transportation to enable rural Americans to be fully included in their communities.
