The mission of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is to serve the citizens of Kentucky and beyond by preparing graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to provide quality clinical services via in-person and telehealth modalities and assume leadership roles; by serving the community and the professions through provision of evidence-based clinical services, continuing education, and exchange of information among practitioners in communication disorders; and by promoting, conducting, and supporting research that contributes to the understanding and management of persons with communication disorders. The goals and objectives of the CSD program are an integral part of the mission of the institution. They are reflective of and consistent with those of the University and College, and are in congruence with and augment those of the University. Additionally, they incorporate requirements and recommendations set forth by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Council on Accreditation of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders.
