About Us

Our mission is to serve the citizens of Kentucky and beyond by preparing undergraduate students with the knowledge and skills needed to become pre-professionals in speech-language pathology and audiology. We strive to:

  • Prepare students to become outstanding pre-professionals in speech-language pathology and audiology and successful applicants to clinical graduate programs
  • Educate students in the diagnosis, evaluation, and care of individuals across the lifespan who have disorders related to speech sound production, voice, stuttering, comprehension and production of language, communication modalities, hearing, balance, feeding, and swallowing

The UK Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders unequivocally deplores all forms of racism and will not tolerate any acts of hate and prejudice against persons of color and those from underrepresented minority groups within our department, college, or profession. We are dedicated to celebrating all voices, valuing all individuals, and working to build a more fair and inclusive environment for persons of color and for all individuals from underrepresented minority groups. We believe in the foundational notion that we are all greater when we work together to lift-up those who have been ignored and repressed for far too long.
