Mission & Vision


The mission of the Masters in Speech-Language Pathology program is to develop exceptional speech-language pathologists dedicated to positively impacting their communities through service, ethical and evidence-based practices, and advocacy and scholarship. In order to achieve this, we are committed to educate our students to become clinical practitioners, teachers and researchers in communication and swallowing disorders. The students will engage in team-based and problem-based learning experiences and provide services to individuals with communication disorders under expert faculty supervision while learning about integrating theory into clinical practice in a variety of medical, educational and private practice settings. Graduates from the program will be known for their commitment to lifelong learning, high standards of professional behavior, collaborative practices, sensitivity to human diversity, and their ability and willingness to use their knowledge and skills to enrich the lives of others. 


The Masters Program in Speech-Language Pathology is dedicated to produce licensed and certified speech-language pathologists who will service persons with communication and swallowing disorders. The program provides a commitment for academic excellence by incorporating evidence-based practice, critical thinking, scholarly activity, innovative clinical training methods, and interprofessional education and practice. The program prepares qualified and compassionate individuals for careers in the field of communication and swallowing.
