What We Do

"I think you would agree that when barriers to inclusion are removed and persons with differing abilities are empowered to fully participate in life’s opportunities, they and their entire community benefit. We strongly believe in that premise from a personal and institutional point of view. The  explicit motivation for Access Tech RIT is to provide research and development opportunities in the field of assistive and health technology, to generates interest and capacity among faculty and community partners, and ultimately to make it a signature program for RIT.

Access Tech RIT is fully committed to these initiatives and looks forward to growing this endeavor in a way that will benefit everyone involved.”
