The National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (National NSSLHA) has awarded the NSSLHA Chapter at Marywood University with 2018 Gold Chapter Honors. Efforts made by the NSSLHA Chapter at Marywood University helped National NSSLHA:
NSSLHA Chapter Advisor, Andrea Novak, who is the CSD Chairperson and Graduate Program Director at Marywood University, stated, “I am so proud of the young men and women in our major for taking an interest in raising awareness of communication disorders in the community. Their fundraising, community service, and advocacy efforts throughout the year demonstrate their dedication to field of speech-language pathology.”
National NSSLHA Chapter Honors are awarded to affiliated NSSLHA chapters that demonstrate an outstanding effort to support National NSSLHA’s mission to inspire, empower, and support students in communication sciences and disorders programs.
About the NSSLHA Chapter at Marywood University
The NSSLHA Chapter at Marywood is housed within the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, which offers a five-year bachelor to master’s degree program in speech-language pathology. For more information regarding the program, contact www.marywood.edu/csd.
Dr. Jennifer Cowgill, Associate Professor of Voice, was invited to be a Faculty Artist in Robbiate, Italy, where she will be performing and teaching at the “Bassi Brugnatelli Conducting and Singing Symposium” this summer.
At the time that Jean attended Marywood University’s low-residency program, “Get Your Master’s with the Masters,” she had small children, a business, and a full-time job. When searching for graduate schools, Jean was looking for a program that was in the right proximity with low-residency.
“Marywood worked for me – with a great location, an accredited program and low-residency – it was perfect. Being able to get to New York to complete study tours made it all possible for me and, Scranton is cool!” Jean said.
Crediting Marywood University’s “Get Your Master’s with the Masters” program with preparing her for her current position, Jean said, “the low-residency, self-directed discipline, organized and self-motivated program are all good qualities that are transferrable into the position I am currently in. The program is designed for working professionals. The expectations are very high and rigorous, but its perfect industry training to set the expectations so high.”
Jean said, “I am eternally grateful to Marywood University, as it prepared me for tremendous connections both within and outside of the program. The faculty, including Steven Brower, Ed Brodsky, and Sister Cor Immaculatum, IHM, helped us to feel a part of the Marywood community both as students and post-graduation.”
The Spring 2018 Dean's List has been announced. Congratulations to all students who earned Dean's List honors!Marywood University Spring 2018 Dean's List
We, the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scranton, Pennsylvania, support the U.S. Catholic Bishops’ statement that separating children from their mothers and fathers at the United States/Mexico border is immoral. Recognizing the inherent dignity of every human being and protecting the integrity of families are fundamental tenets of our faith. They are foundational for a healthy and just society.
As women religious, we raise our voices against the recent decision of the United States Attorney General that potentially strips asylum protection for women who are victims of domestic violence. We urge the Attorney General and all policy makers to enhance the potential of our asylum system to protect the right to life. Protecting the integrity of the family structure, the welfare of innocent children, and the dignity of all human life are pro-life issues that demand immediate action.
As we “serve a world crying out for justice and hungering for meaning,” we stand with those who search for new and deeper ways to live the Gospel value of love. We challenge those in leadership positions to engage in creative and fresh thinking and action that would “ bring about God’s dream for this beautiful, yet wounded world.”
“When we have difficulty recognizing the innate dignity of our fellow human beings, we can ask God to give us the grace to see it."
- Pope Francis
Donate your hearing aids regardless of age or condition. Healthy hearing should be enjoyed by all citizens, and for those who require assistive devices, economics shouldn’t be a barrier to hearing health. The Hearing Aid Donation Center, a project of Hearing Charities of America, begins the process of recycling and remanufacturing hearing aids for those in need. Through the generosity of organizations and institutions throughout the nation, your donated hearing aids will help others enjoy the sounds many of us take for granted.
Please consider dropping off your used hearing aids to the Marywood University Audiology Clinic, which will ship the aids to Hearing Aid Charities of America at no cost to you. All donations are tax deductible through Hearing Aid Charities of America, and you will receive a letter of acknowledgement from them upon receipt of your hearing aid and demographic information.
For additional information, please contact the Marywood University Audiology Clinic at 570-348-6299.
