Our Staff

We are a dedicated group of researchers and staff who work to promote change for people with disabilities. Visit the Staff page for staff bios, staff focus areas, and contact information.

Our Approach

RTC:Rural focuses our research on disability in rural America because we understand that the needs and opportunities of people living in rural communities can be very different than those in urban areas.

Our Partners

Without our partners across the nation, our work would not have the impact that it does. We have built many long-term partnerships with disability researchers, service providers, advocates, and policy makers.
