Embedding Cultural Diversity and Cultural and Linguistic Competence: A Guide for UCEDD Curricula and Training Activities

This project is designed to research, develop, and disseminate a set or resources for the national network of UCEDDs to embed cultural diversity and cultural and linguistic competence (CLC) in their curricula and training activities. The project will build the capacity of network programs to embed widely accepted CLC policies, structures, and practices across the four UCEDD core functions of pre-service training and continuing education, community services, research, and information dissemination. The project has a special focus on unserved and underserved communities in the United States, its territories, and tribal communities. Resources include the first national UCEDD inventory and report of CLC training and diversity resources, a set of national recommendations for the UCEDD network, and a matrix to apply proven organizational and behavioral change strategies to increase diversity and advance & sustain CLC. This project is conducted in collaboration with key stakeholders in the UCEDD network and funded by AIDD.
