mission, along with the University of Mississippi, is to create, evaluate,
share and apply knowledge in a free, open, and inclusive environment of
intellectual inquiry. We seek to serve the people of Mississippi and the
world through a breadth of academic, research and professional programs by:
an intensive program that focuses on the development of language and literacy
in children with moderate to severe language disorders, hearing impairments,
and intellectual or developmental disabilities; supporting these children as
they transition to public schools or other academic settings.
exemplary clinical training for undergraduate and graduate students seeking
careers as speech-language pathologists (SLPs), speech associates, and
with the community, including local schools, teachers, staff, and
administration, to promote successful language interventions in academic and
in research that positively impacts the fields of early childhood
education and communicative disorders, and disseminating evidenced-based
practice findings to the scientific community, clinical practitioners,
community agencies, schools, and families.
