Rural Institute Mission and Vision
We engage in research, provide education and interdisciplinary training, and develop model services that improve the skills, abilities, quality of life and satisfaction of people with disabilities in rural communities, their families and those who serve and support them.
We practice: (a) respectful partnership, (b) informed leadership and (c) evidence-based agenda-setting.
Our vision is for individuals with disabilities and their families, especially those living in Montana and other rural/frontier communities, experience an improved and satisfying quality of life.
