Welcome From the Department Chair

Welcome to the Speech-Language Pathology/Audiology Department website. 

The end of the past academic year brought about some changes, including the departure of our previous department chair, Dr. Marie Kerins, who left the department but remains at the University in her new position as Associate Vice President for Research and Graduate Affairs. We will miss her leadership and wish her success in her new role! As a result of this change, Dr. Lena Caesar is now the Undergraduate Director, taking my place as I am now the new Department Chair.  We also welcome back Dr. Janet Preis in the role of Graduate Program Director as she returns from sabbatical. We are very excited and energized to start the new academic year as we have such outstanding and dedicated faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students!  We also want to extend a warm welcome to several new faculty members including Mr. David Alianiello, Dr. Amitava Biswas, Ms. Christine Goode, and Ms. Heidi Shullenbarger.
