The mission of the National Multicultural Interpreter Consortium is to improve the quantity and quality of interpreting services provided to individuals who are D/deaf, hard of hearing, and deaf-blind from culturally diverse communities by providing educational opportunities, recruiting culturally diverse interpreters, and enhancing cultural sensitivity with the profession. This group has created a curriculum in which guidelines are provided in working diverse communities, an outline of topics, lecture notes, and case studies. There are companion streaming videos and DVDs as well. This resource is highly recommended.
