UCEDDs

 

Since 1963, University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research, and Service (UCEDD) have been working to accomplish a shared vision that foresees a nation in which all Americans, including Americans with disabilities, participate fully in their communities. Independence, productivity, and community inclusion are key components of this vision. Currently, sixty-seven UCEDDs in every state and territory are located in a university setting.

New! The AUCD Emerging Leaders Map

Showcasing Trainees & Early Career Leaders within the AUCD Network

The AUCD Emerging Leaders Map highlights diverse trainees and early career leaders across AUCD's network.

The Map provides an opportunity for you to explore and learn more about each trainee and early career leader. When clicking on a pin from a Program/Center, you'll learn more about each trainee about their passions, how they have leveraged their traineeship, how they are emerging as leaders, and advice for individuals who are interested in joining a traineeship.
