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) and built partner networks with interpreter education service providers, practitioners, educators, and consumers locally, regionally and nationally. The states within the GURIEC region were Alabama, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Mission: The National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers builds and promotes effective practices in interpreting education. The National Consortium draws upon the wisdom and energy of experts, consumers and other stakeholders to advance the field. The National Consortium is dedicated to challenging the status quo by promoting innovation, strong partner networks and multiculturalism throughout its programming. As responsible stewards of public funding, the Consortium is committed to products, programs and services that maximize resources and are replicable, measurable, sustainable and non-proprietary.
