Abstract: Description of technology bridges utilized to connect rural undergraduate and graduate students to culturally responsive special education personnel preparation programs. These technology connections facilitate the preparation of teachers and future university faculty who can improve the education of students with disabilities who are culturally diverse and/or English Language Learners through the distance delivery of culturally responsive training in Rural Multicultural Special Education Personnel Preparation Programs. These programs include an undergraduate dual major special education program, a masters degree program in special education and bilingual multicultural education, and two doctoral programs in culturally and linguistically diverse special education. The four degree program models can be replicated in rural and as well as urban areas with culturally and linguistically diverse populations.
