A Letter from the SLHS Chair

Wondering what Fall 2020 will look like in SLHS? As you will soon see on our course schedules, most of the SLHS classes have been moved online for the fall. The choice to move to an online schedule was made for one simple, unimpeachable reason: safety. Our department is united in its support of safer choices for all.

Munson Team’s “Zoom” and Creativity Add Dimension and Scope to Speech Perception...

Professor Benjamin Munson has transformed his NIH grant to dedicate an entire arm to study audiovisual speech perception over Zoom. He and postdoctoral research associate Dr. AlayoTripp answer some questions about how they are taking advantage of this time of social distancing to keep the study moving forward.

Striving for Justice, Equity, and Anti-Racism

The University of Minnesota’s Department of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences is committed to eliminating systemic racism, both locally and worldwide. Our department, along with the entire University of Minnesota, condemns racism, bigotry, and hatred. The killing of George Floyd, a member of our Minnesota community, has laid bare the long-standing racism in our society to those who weren’t already experiencing it on a daily basis themselves. It prompts us to affirm and build upon our commitment to ensure meaningful change within our classrooms, department, college, university, communities, professions, and nation.  We pledge to do our part in a collective effort to eradicate racism, bigotry, and hatred of all kinds.
