AUCD Launches International Fellowship Program on Inclusive Education

This new exchange program, a partnership between AUCD, the Institute for Community Inclusion at the University of Massachusetts Boston and sponsored by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, will promote the growth of future leaders in inclusive education in countries and communities across the globe. 20 mid-career disability and education professionals from Brazil, Peru, Kenya and Tanzania will be placed at partner host sites across the United States, including UCEDDs and LENDs. During their time in the U.S., Fellows will learn about policies and practices that have influenced inclusive education in the U.S. and will plan a project upon their return home. The program honors the work of former Senators Bob Dole and Tom Harkin in the field of disability rights and inclusive education.
