Program Vision

Our Program Vision

The DePaul University Speech Language Pathology Program is one of the preeminent Speech Language Pathology Programs in the Country. It has already attracted top leaders in the field to implement this vision. The Program is uniquely designed to transform outstanding students into dedicated, highly trained speech-language pathologists who will competently and compassionately meet the needs of individuals with communication and swallowing disorders. To further the program's mission, the Bilingual English-Spanish Specialization Certificate (BESSC) attracts​ Spanish speakers to meet the needs of that underserved population in their native language thereby enhancing the ripple effect of the impact of the program throughout our Country. ​
