Site visit scheduled for master’s degree program in communication disorders

The Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) will conduct a reaccreditation site visit for the M.S. program in Communication Disorders later this month.

A four-member team, chaired by Dr. Theresa Bartolotta of Seton Hall University, will be on the Huntington campus Sept. 19 and 20 to meet with students, key administrators and all members of the academic and clinical faculty.

The CAA is seeking public comment as part of its review of the graduate education programs in audiology or speech-language pathology. A public meeting will take place from 4:30  to 5 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19, in Smith Hall 134.  Individuals with an interest in the Department of Communication Disorders or the Speech and Hearing Center are especially encouraged to attend the public meeting.

A copy of the standards of accreditation and information on the CAA’s policy on public comment may be obtained by contacting the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association accreditation office by phone at 800-498-2071, online at www.asha.org/Academic/accreditation/PublicCommentList/ or by mail at 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, MD 20850.
