The Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) in the US serving as a resource for those involved in education, research and service working to meet the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. As a UCCED, the mission of the Carolina Institute is to work in partnership with people with disabilities, their families, advocates, professionals, and organizations to develop and provide interdisciplinary training, exemplary services, technical assistance, and dissemination of information, all aimed at increasing the independence, productivity, and integration into the community of persons with developmental disabilities. The Carolina Institute has been designated a UCEDD by the Administration on Developmental Disabilities and is one of a national network of University Centers for Excellence coordinated by the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD).
The dedicated faculty and staff of the Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities depend on private financial support to advance our mission to provide world class services, research and training for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
