Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education
The Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education (CCIE) was founded in 2006 to promote professionalism in the field of sign language interpreter education through the process of accreditation. CCIE was established after nearly two decades of collaborative efforts of six stakeholder organizations, the National Alliance of Black Interpreters, Inc., national Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, National Association of the Deaf, Conference of Interpreter Trainers, Canadian Association of Sign Language Interpreters, and the American Sign Language Teachers Association.
CCIE’s mission is to promote professionalism in the field of interpreter education through:
- The accreditation of professional preparation programs,
- The development and revision of interpreter education standards,
- The encouragement of excellence in program development,
- A national and international dialogue on the preservation and advancement of standards in the field of interpreter and higher education, and
- The application of the knowledge, skills, and ethics of the profession.
The Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education would like to express appreciation to:
- The Conference of Interpreter Trainers for its many contributions, as well as the strong collaboration that is evidenced by the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed at the 2017 CIT National Conference in Salt Lake City,UT.
- The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf for its many contributions, as well as the strong collaboration that is evidenced by the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed at the 2011 RID National Conference in Atlanta, GA.
