The RRTC on Employment of People with Physical Disabilities

VCU letters on campus

VCU received a grant to fund the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Employment of People with Physical Disabilities. The grant was awarded for 4.4 million dollars over 5 years by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR, grant #90RT5041). The purpose of the RRTC is to conduct advanced research, training, technical assistance, and dissemination activities specifically to improve the employment outcomes of individuals with physical disabilities.

Dr. Paul Wehman is the Principal Investigator and Dr. Katherine Inge is the Project Director. We are also collaborating with Dr. James Krause and his staff at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and Dr. Fong Chan at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and many other partners.
