Council on Research and Evaluation (CORE)
NEW on the CORE Web Pages
Deadline: May 31, 2013
The AUCD Conference provides a special opportunity to share your interests, talents, and perspectives in a range of disability related topics with others in the network and our partners.
Promoting Inclusion in an Increasingly Diverse World
This Conference theme promotes our network values of inclusion of all persons with developmental and other disabilities in community life and engages the network in conversation and practices to ensure our work reflects the changing cultural and linguistic landscape in our Centers and States.
We're wishing a happy birthday to ending discrimination against people with disabilities in health plans, ending yearly and lifetime caps on benefits and ending the exclusion of people with pre-existing conditions!
The Council on Research and Evaluation (CORE) is AUCD's most recently formed Council (2006).
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.
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.
