The Gallaudet University Regional Interpreter Education Center (GURIEC) was funded by the Department of Education Rehabilitation Service Administration to provide and sponsor activities that increase the number and diversity of qualified interpreters. To effectively accomplish this task and to maximize resources, expertise, funding, and leadership, GURIEC joined forces with five other RSA-funded Centers across the United States to create the National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers (NCIEC). NCIEC built partner networks with interpreter education service providers, practitioners, educators, and consumers locally, regionally and nationally.Areas of Focus: The National Consortium was involved in many activities in service to interpreters and interpreter-related programs, and work teams were established through the National Consortium to focus on specific priorities with specific end-goals.
Areas of focus include, but were not limited to:Deaf InterpretersDeaf Self-Advocacy Training (DSAT)Diversity, Equity, and InclusionHealthcare InterpretingInterpreter ShortageInterpreting via Video (VRI/VRS)Interpreting for DeafBlind individualsLegal InterpretingMentorshipTrilingual Interpreting (ASL/English/Spanish)
GURIEC was re-awarded the Interpreter Training Program grant for 2010-2016 from the US Department of Education Rehabilitation Services Administration, and successfully worked with stakeholders, collaborators, and our Interpreter Education Center partners during the 2010 - 2016 grant cycle.
