Message from the Chair

Susan Nittrouer, Ph.D.

Welcome to the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at the University of Florida! For more than a half century, faculty members at the University of Florida have been seeking solutions to communication and related disorders through innovative research, training, and service. We have established four campus programs to support the development of future clinicians and scientists at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as three distance learning programs. Faculty members within the department come from some of the best academic programs in the country themselves, and their combined efforts have led to the creation of a dynamic and diverse learning community. These teacher-scholars offer state-of-the-art knowledge to our students, along with the critical-thinking skills needed to translate that knowledge into optimal intervention strategies. We are proud to be a part of what makes the Gator Nation one of the top ten public universities in the country.
