Give to CDIS

The mission of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is to enrich health and communication effectiveness in Oklahoma through academic teaching, research, accredited professional clinical training, and public service to the people of Oklahoma through the Oklahoma State University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic.

This is a very exciting time for us at the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The department has witnessed a phenomenal growth in student numbers, faculty recruitment, research productivity, and outreach activities in the recent past. The number of majors in our undergraduate program has been burgeoning over the last few years. In 2013, we admitted a record number of graduate students from across the country into our program.  Recently, our undergraduate program was recognized as one of the top 5 programs in the College of Arts and Sciences. The department is also undergoing a major transformation. Although we maintain our reputation as one of the premier clinical training programs and speech-language-hearing-clinics in the country, we have also recently begun conducting cutting-edge research that will eventually benefit the community at large.   

How can you help us grow?

Your donation to the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department Fund can:

  • Support the department’s most urgent needs
  • Establish a scholarship to support outstanding future speech-language pathologists and audiologists
  • Help individuals with communication disorders but financial hardship pay for their clinical services.

There are also many other ways in which you can be a benefactor to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. For further information, please contact Dr. Ramesh Kaipa.
