The Center for Disabilities is a member of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD). AUCD is a non-profit organization which supports and promotes the national network of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Research, Education and Service (UCEDDs). AUCD also supports 43 Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Programs (LEND) and 15 Developmental Disability Research Centers (DDRCs). These centers and programs act as a bridge between a university and the community, crossing into the medical field, medical school, graduate and post-graduate learning. We are a proud member of both the UCEDD network and have a long-standing history as a LEND program site.
