How Gifts Make a Difference

Your gifts allow us to provide exemplary educational programs that prepare the next generation of scholars, clinicians, educators, and leaders. Our primary funding goals are to help clients who are unable to pay for speech and hearing services; to support students by providing scholarships, covering research expenses, and funding travel to conferences; and to purchase supplies and equipment for use in therapy sessions. Our biggest wish, however, is financial support for a new building. Despite updates, Goodnight Hall is beyond repair and deteriorating. Please aid us in achieving these important goals and improvements.

Why We Need Your Support

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is home to five related programs: undergraduate degrees in CSD; an accredited master’s program in speech language pathology; an accredited professional doctorate in audiology; a doctoral program with research training and specialization; and a post-baccalaureate capstone certificate. We serve the local community by providing wide-ranging speech, language, and hearing services in our campus-based training clinic; we offer statewide outreach related to speech-language and audiology service needs; we perform cutting-edge research; and we train professionals who will carry on the mission of improving communication abilities for all people. To continue this great work, we need the support of gifts.

Our goal

We need gifts to help support:

  • Clients who are unable to pay for speech and hearing services
  • Scholarships for students
  • Travel to conferences
  • Student research expenses
  • Supplies and equipment (such as iPad and apps) that are used in therapy sessions
Our biggest wish, however, is financial support for a new building. Our current home, Goodnight Hall, has been identified as one of the buildings in worst repair within the college. Although we have made many updates over the years, there is ongoing deterioration along with structural problems that are simply not fixable. We need a new building!
