Welcome to The Council on Education of the Deaf

The Council on Education of the Deaf (CED) is an organization sponsored by eight major national organizations dedicated to quality education for all deaf and hard of hearing students. CED promulgates nationally recognized standards for teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students in all educational settings, accredits university programs preparing teachers of deaf and hard-of-hearing students, and collaborates with a variety of other related organizations through several national committees and workgroups.

Response of the Council on Education of the Deaf to the
Announcement of Program Closure
of the
Bilingual-Bicultural Track of
Utah State University’s Master’s Program in
Communication Disorders and Deaf Education

On February 2, 2022, Utah State University (USU) issued a statement that erroneously attributed the suspension of the Bilingual-Bicultural Track to the Council on Education of the Deaf (CED). Immediately CED contacted USU to demand a retraction and correction.
To set the record straight:
CED had not yet completed its process regarding a recommendation on re-accreditation of the program.
CED never recommended that USU suspend the program.
USU has since edited its statement. However, CED is not satisfied that USU has fully corrected its statement and has notified USU to this effect.
CED stands behind its accreditation process, which promotes teacher education standards embodying best practices, reflecting current research, and embracing diversity and multiculturalism.


CED is now on social media!
