Communication Disorders Strategic Plan


The Division of Communication Disorders will create innovative clinical teaching and research programs that address the health and development needs of patients, clients, and students.


The Division of Communication Disorders produces practice-ready speech-language pathologists, who are prepared to work in a rural state with clinical populations across the lifespan. The Division engages the community, encourages inter-professional practice, and conducts research that advances clinical practices across the state and region.

  3. Develop innovative and enhanced learning opportunities in graduate and undergraduate coursework.

Goal Two

Inspiring Students

Develop awareness of communication disorder and related careers through increasing campus ASL courses and offerings.

Goal Three
