Department of Speech-Language Pathology
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs), Assessment Metrics/Timeline, and Relevant Standards

The Department of Speech-Language Pathology seeks excellence in the academic and clinical preparation of students in speech-language pathology, in conducting research, and in the provision of services to the University and to the community-at-large (Department Mission).  The Department aspires to provide our students with the knowledge and skills needed to solve clinical problems, administer comprehensive assessments, and implement evidence-based interventions for a diverse client population in both medical and school-based settings (Department Goal).  Faculty have established a set of graduate program learning outcomes (PLOs) which are consistent with this mission and goals and aligned with national and state standards. PLOs are formally evaluated by the Faculty on a rotating basis, given suggested assessment metrics (and other relevant data).  This ensure the program maintains consistent standards in these areas and revises academic and curriculum programs as needed.
