SLHS Student Groups

Interested in joining one of our student groups? We have very active chapters of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) and Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) as well as the student led Speech-Language and Hearing Cats of Color (SHCC) on campus. These groups provide opportunities for you to engage in educational, philanthropic and leadership activities that complement what you are learning in the classroom.

You can read more about these groups here.

SLHS offers a variety of opportunities for students to engage in meaningful learing experiences outside of the classroom, including directed research (SLHS 392/492), independent study (SLHS 399/499), preceptoring an undergraduate course (SLHS 391/491), and participating as a clinical assistant (SLHS 458/459). You can learn about the campus-wide engagement initiative, and College of Science opportunities.
