  • Public Meeting for Reaccreditation of Communication Disorders Program

    10/28/13
    11:15 am - 12:00 pm
    216 Tremont
    Room 912

    On Monday, October 28th, and Tuesday, October 29th, the Communication Disorders program in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders will be hosting a site visit team from the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). This visit is part of our reaccreditation process, which takes place every eight years.

    The evaluation team will be meeting with many individuals, including administrators, academic and clinical faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, and clients, in order to assess our ability to provide a high-quality graduate program in speech language pathology.

    The Standards for Accreditation of Graduate Education Programs in Speech-Language Pathology and the CAA's Policy and Procedures on Public Comment are available on the ASHA website. These documents also may be obtained by sending a written request to the Accreditation Office at ASHA, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, by calling ASHA's Action Center at 800-498-2071, or by sending an e-mail to accreditation@asha.org.

    The visiting team members from the Council of Academic Accreditation include:

    • Dr. Monica Hough, Professor and Chair of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Florida International University
    • Dr. Sherrill Morris, Chair, School of Allied Health and Communicative Disorders, Northern Illinois University
    • Mr. Roger Grimsley, Speech-Language Pathologist, WakeMed Health and Hospitals, Raleigh, North Carolina

    A re-accreditation review offers a time for reflection regarding the progress that the Communication Disorders Program at Emerson College has made in the last eight years and a platform to inform our next steps.

    We hope you will join us in welcoming the visiting CAA team members to our campus.
