Maureen SullivanWelcome to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Oklahoma State University. Long recognized as an outstanding clinical program, in concert with the mission of the College of Arts and Sciences and the university at large, the department has more recently recruited research faculty to expand the research profile of the department. An enthusiastic and experienced group of clinical staff supervises our first-year graduate students in clinical internships encompassing the widest variety of adult and pediatric disorders on both the Stillwater and the Tulsa campuses. Our second-year graduate clinicians enjoy clinical externships around the country. Our current program director, Dr. Ramesh Kaipa, oversees the graduate program and ensures the program is in compliance with the accreditation standards.

In association with our new research mission, the curriculum has been modified to prepare our students to engage in research at the undergraduate and the graduate levels. In association with newly forged interdisciplinary collaborations, the department has been regularly hosting undergraduate students from around the country as a part of the NSF REU program, The Biological Bases of Behavior. We have also been very active in our outreach and community engagement commitments. We offer a full complement of speech, language, and audiological services to the public through our Stillwater campus clinic. Audiological screening and a full complement of speech and language services are also offered at our Tulsa campus clinic.

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you will spend some time to go over our website and get to know about all the exciting events happening at the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

Associate Professor and Interim Department Head
