Awards, Accolades, Accomplishments

Since 1937, Ohio University's Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) program has served as a model for best practice in universities across the U.S. and abroad.

These include the CSD Undergraduate Research Club, the OHIO Respite Volunteer Program, and the Hearing, Speech and Language Clinic. The program has a long-standing reputation for providing quality services to people of all ages in nine counties in southern Ohio, one of the most severely medically underserved regions in the state.
