SLHS Departmental Mission Statement

Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences:  Undergraduate Program

Our departmental mission is to continue the tradition of providing a diverse urban population with a comprehensive degree program that converges knowledge of communication and its disorders with everyday applications. 

Our program is centered around three core values:

  • Provide an affordable and accessible gateway to employment or post-graduate study in speech-language pathology, audiology, or other allied-health professions.
  • Blend foundational coursework with applied learning experiences.
  • Recognize and value the expansive influence of communication and its disorders/differences across the lifespan on individual and collective experiences.

Our vision is to educate graduates to value and advocate for communication access across all abilities and identities.
