The ULM Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) welcomes students majoring in Speech-Language Pathology. NSSLHA provides opportunities for leadership and service. Members take part in various activities on campus and within the community, such as the ULM Speech and Hearing Clinic Fall Festival, the annual Research Update Conference sponsored by Speech-Language Pathology, NSSLHA silent auction fundraiser, Conference on Aging sponsored by C.A.B.L.E., and Race for the Cure. The chapter also participates in Better Hearing and Speech Month activities each May. Recruitment occurs throughout the year. Officer elections are held annually in the fall and are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. In addition to being a member in the local chapter, students are also encouraged to affiliate with the national chapter. For more information about this organization, contact Jennifer Whited, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty members serve as mentors to graduate students conducting research that is subsequently presented at the annual Research Update Conference sponsored by Speech-Language Pathology and the ULM Research Symposium. The research is also submitted for peer review and is often accepted for presentation at state, regional, and national conferences. Students and faculty present research at the annual conferences of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Several scholarships are available at both the undergraduate and graduate levels:
• Lynn Rowe Moore Scholarship of Excellence
• Lawrence J. Danna
• Sertoma Club of Monroe
• Lion's Club
• Dr. David Irwin Research Scholarship
