About the Speech-language Pathology Department


Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Speech Language Pathology is to build community through communication in a responsive and supportive way. We are grounded in providing an innovative curriculum which promotes reflections of one's own diversity, actions, and empathy to create a climate of shared values and respect with the culturally and linguistically diverse populations that we serve. We actively engage students in highly interactive and safe learning environments to build academic knowledge and develop critical thinking skills to apply to real-world decision making.
