Student Organizations

Student Ambassadors

The communicative disorders departmental ambassadors are a group of dedicated and personable students who are representatives of our department, as well as the Speech and Hearing Center, across campus and throughout our community.

They provide tours to prospective students, distribute information regarding majoring in communicative disorders and a career in speech-language pathology, answer questions about our clinical services at conferences and community events, and hold other various events throughout the year.


Applicants must be rising juniors or seniors by credit hours and have completed all 200-level courses by the end of the spring semester during which interviews occur.


Through an application and interview process each spring, ambassadors are chosen based on their initiative and investment in our field, academic standing, and personality.
