About CORE

The AUCD Board of Directors has established a number of Councils and Committees that are made up of experts in the field to help the Board address emerging trends and issues, and to facilitate communication across and beyond the AUCD network.

The Council on Research and Evaluation encourages sound research and evaluation in the field of disabilities. It promotes collaborative research and evaluation endeavors among AUCD network members and across funding agencies and organizations, advocates for broad acceptance of the many valid research and evaluation methodologies utilized, supports the training of tomorrow's professionals to provide quality research and evaluation activities, advances the involvement of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of research and Council activities, and recognizes quality research and evaluation accomplishments.



The Council on Research and Evaluation (CORE) is AUCD's most recently formed Council (2006).

Mission
Research and evaluation involve methodologies which can assure the systemic change, advocacy, and capacity building for individuals with disabilities. In many ways, the AUCD network is the partner that can bring data to decisions which are made about programs and policies. The mission of the Council on Research and Evaluation is to encourage quality research and evaluation, promote collaborative studies across the AUCD network, advocate for broad acceptance of the many research and evaluation methodologies utilized across both the disciplines and the network Centers, support enhanced training to perform quality research and evaluation activities, advance the involvement of individuals with disabilities in all aspects of research, and to recognize quality research and evaluation across the AUCD network.

Purpose
The Council shall: serve as a focus for the identification and discussion of issues regarding research and evaluation; serve as a representative voice of the research and evaluation activities within the Association's network; and influence the development and implementation of initiatives relevant to achieving and sustaining appropriate research and evaluation activities to guide the development of national policies.

The Council fulfills its mission and purpose for AUCD and its constituent membership by serving as a conduit for technical assistance, providing input into policy, and engaging in other support activities deemed necessary to advance the mandate for research and evaluation.
