MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”R. Buckminster Fuller
Like Bucky Fuller, who I had the great honor to hear multiple times during my undergraduate studies, I am committed to building a new model program that prepares individuals to address today’s world of rapid changes and ever-increasing complexity. Simultaneously, our faculty and students will conduct basic and applied interdisciplinary research that is at the forefront of our field.
The Communication Sciences & Disorders Department at the University of Delaware emerged due to the great need for speech-language specialists in the state. Beyond meeting this shortage, our goals are to strengthen the knowledge and skills of practitioners, to develop a model clinic where innovative practices are developed and evaluated, and to broadly disseminate our findings throughout the state and beyond. Working collaboratively with service providers in the state and other stakeholders, we will address the needs of our most vulnerable and under-served populations in the state.
