About CEDC

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 Community Education and Dissemination Council (CEDC) serves as a focus and forum for the identification and discussion of issues of community education and technical assistance, is a representative voice of community education interests and concerns within the AUCD network, influences the development and implementation of national community education policies and initiatives, and shares resources and exemplary community education programs developed and use by Centers across the nation.

 


 

A core function of University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDDs) is to offer community service activities that include community education and technical assistance for or with individuals with developmental disabilities, their family members, professionals, paraprofessionals, students and volunteers.
