Historical Information

"The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) was founded in 1935 by Professor M. D. Steer, one of the first doctoral students trained in the then-new discipline of human communication sciences and disorders. Originally located in University Hall, the department's primary function was to provide speech therapy to university students. A year later, an undergraduate academic training program was started. The graduate program began in 1940 and our first doctoral degree was granted in 1948. The SLHS program was one of the first in the country to achieve accreditation in both speech pathology and audiology from the Educational Standards Board of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association."
