University of Montana Rural Institute For Inclusive Communities

University of Montana campus in spring

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.

The Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living.
