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 National Training Directors Council serves as a focus and forum for the identification, discussion, and resolution of problems and issues regarding pre-service interdisciplinary training; to function as a representative voice of the pre-service interdisciplinary training interests and concerns within the network, and to influence the development of and assist in the implementation of established national training policies.

 


 

The National Training Directors' Council (NTDC) was established in 1978 as an integral part of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities, formally American Association of University Affiliated Programs.

Mission
The mission of the Council is to identify the mutual needs of training directors from the UCEDD and LEND networks and to promote collaborative actions to improve the effectiveness of interdisciplinary training.

Goals & Objectives
The Council fulfills this mission to the Association and its constituent membership by pursuing the following goals and objectives:

  • To serve as a forum for the identification, discussion, and resolution of issues affecting interdisciplinary training.
  • To serve as a representative voice of the training concerns within the AUCD network, and as such, to influence overall policies and procedures that affect training.
  • To act as a communication vehicle for the implementation of national training policies through liaison with other groups.
