Statement on Dismantling Racism and Striving for Equity

We are strongly committing ourselves to create a racially equitable program that has the capability to transform and dismantle inequities and racism in educational and healthcare settings and in the field of speech-language pathology and audiology.

We acknowledge that there are systematic issues of implicit bias, racism and inequity within the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology that impact the access to graduate programs for Black, Indigenous and People of Color.

  • Starting immediately, we will no longer require the Graduate Record Examination in graduate applications for our Masters degree program in Speech-Language Pathology.
  • We have established a work-group in order to build funds for scholarships and to support application fees for students who are underrepresented and who may need assistance.
  • We plan to actively listen to those who are underrepresented in our program in how our program can continue to foster diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • We will continue the work started last year to build programming with an explicit goal of recruiting individuals from racially, culturally, linguistically and gender diverse backgrounds for both graduate and undergraduate programs.
  • We will implement coursework in both graduate and undergraduate programs to address diversity, equity and inclusion in the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology and related settings.
  • Faculty and staff will engage in anti-racism and cultural humility continuing education.
